Zero hour contacts slammed

Following the publication of research by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) showing a significant increase in the number of workers exposed to exploitative zero hour contracts, the Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) have attacked employers who fail to provide workers with employment security and deny them a decent living wage.

Grahame Smith, STUC General Secretary, said: “With 1.8 million UK workers now having contracts of employment that offer no fixed hours, the world of work is in chaos.”
