• End the exploitation of Sports Direct staff
    An undercover investigation has found evidence that Sports Direct could be illegally paying their staff below the minimum wage. The reporter recorded how warehouse staff were unable to leave the building during their 30-minute unpaid breaks – a practice some employment law experts say should count as paid working time and, if correct, would push Shirebrook’s effective hourly wage rates below the legal minimum of £8.72 to about £8.20. Since the start of lockdown, warehouse staff have been working around the clock to keep us well stocked. While they supply us with everything we need to be comfortable at home, many of them are working just below minimum wage - unable to even leave hot and stuffy warehouses for a bit of fresh air. These workers deserve better. And it's up to us to demand better for them.

  • Hermes: Protect all your drivers now!
    Parcel delivery firm Hermes are hiring for 10,000 new jobs to cope with the huge increase in demand for online shopping during the coronavirus pandemic. But, Hermes is facing criticism that it doesn’t protect all of their delivery drivers. Many drivers still don’t receive any sick pay and aren’t guaranteed the legal minimum wage. It just isn’t fair. It's time Hermes did more to ensure all staff receive basic workers rights. Sign the petition to pressure Hermes to do more to protect all drivers now!

  • Save Wales Aviation Jobs
    In July alone, 3,848 job losses have been announced in the Welsh Aviation industry. That figure only covers sites with union membership and agreements. There could be many more jobs at risk. Until the pandemic, Welsh Aviation had seen 10 years of growth – with excellent apprenticeship schemes bringing young women, as well as young men, into highly skilled engineering jobs. In 18 months, perhaps less, this sector will be back on track – as long as these jobs are protected. If not, they'll be gone forever. We are calling on Central Government in Westminster to listen to Welsh aviation workers and stop this tsunami of job losses.

  • End the exploitation of garment workers
    Workers in clothing factories in the UK are being exposed to unsafe working conditions, and wages as low as £3 an hour. It is illegal to earn less than minimum wage in the UK - and we have laws and workers’ rights in place that should protect all of us at work. But right now they are not properly enforced - which means workers are put at risk. This needs to change. If the government commits to improving the enforcement of UK labour laws, we can set a level playing field that ensures decent jobs, safe conditions and fair wages for everyone. Sign the petition to up the pressure now.

  • Live entertainment, DJ, performers self employed furlough payments
    The government have allowed pubs, bars, clubs and restaurants to re open on July 4th. This is wonderful news for many thousands of UK businesses and employees. However, the government also state that live entertainment, music and performances are not permitted until further notice. The 2nd and final furlough payment for self employed people will be made in August. This petition is to get extended furlough payments for self employed musicians, performers and DJ's (should they be needed) until the government state that they can return to their business of performing in front of live audiences in these venues. PLEASE SIGN, SHARE AND ASK TO BE SHARED BY OTHERS. THANK YOU!

  • Self Employed Income Support Scheme is arbitrarily unfair
    It is fundamentally unfair to penalise a self-employed person, when they would otherwise qualify under the rules, as they were only "self-employed" for part of that year, even though they have been self-employed ever since, and they have lost 100% of their income due to COVID-19. In most cases, these are small amounts of money, less than most PAYE employees will be paid until October. Yet we have been briefly offered some support, which has now been snatched away, without any appeal.

  • SIGN! Reverse the decision: HMRC must include new starters under JRS
    The rules of the JRS state that to qualify for the furlough grant, new employees must have been recorded with HMRC by 19 March 2020 and, therefore, an employee must have been paid on the 6 March 2020 pay day. Many employers believed that this deadline would change and employees whose first pay was within the 1st of April would be included. However, the Chancellor confirmed on 12 May 2020 that there would be no change to this approach, and HMRC have now finalised their guidance in this area. Now, a lot of workers that have just changed their jobs or started a new job are not eligible under JRS are not receiving any pay as it is not possible for some companies to sustain furlough payments without the support of the JRS. Please sign for employee rights!

    This is important because essential workers and people who are risking their lives and saving lives are the people who are significant for making the world go round and progress. Without these people we are doomed. These people give us their all and we are not giving them enough!!!! It should be a human right for somebody who risks their life to have a high pay. Or at least a higher pay!!!
