The TUC's Great Jobs Agenda sets out that all workers should:
- be paid fairly
- work in a safe and healthy workplace
- be treated decently
- have guaranteed hours
- have their voice heard in the workplace
- have the chance to progress at work.
The aim of the agenda is to unite workplace and political representatives around a common set of objectives to improve the quality of jobs.
I have signed an Early Day Motion in Parliament to highlight the Great Jobs Agenda and call on the Government to improve workers’ rights in law.
Too many people are stuck in jobs where they are treated poorly. They have no stability, low wages, no opportunities to develop their talents and they’re scared about what might happen if they speak out.
I think the Great Jobs Agenda is a positive starting point to improve workers’ rights and turn those rubbish jobs into great jobs.
