Bad bosses warned over their ‘ nasty lit­tle schemes’

Solihull News - - NEWS -

BAD bosses are treat­ing staff as “throw­away work­ers with throw­away rights” as ex­ploita­tion con­tin­ues across in­dus­tries, a union leader has warned.

TUC gen­eral sec­re­tary Frances O’Grady said peo­ple were left wait­ing by the phone hop­ing for work just as dock­ers once waited by the quay­side.

She told the TUC Congress in Brighton: “No reg­u­lar hours means scram­bling to pay bills and rent and the boss doesn’t even need to go to the bother of sack­ing you.

“He can de­ac­ti­vate you by app.

“Pre­cious lit­tle dig­nity or con­trol, treated as throw­away work­ers with throw­away rights.”

She warned bad bosses their “nasty lit­tle schemes” will be ex­posed by unions.

“Ei­ther you sit at the ta­ble with us and work out a bet­ter deal for your work­ers or we’ll see you in court and in the front pages,” she said.
