Wage Concern Campaign


On Friday 15th May, the Employment Opportunities Bill will be debated in Parliament. The Bill has been put forward by Conservative backbenchers and it would enable employers to ‘opt-out’ of the Minimum Wage brought in by the Labour government ten years ago.

If passed, the system would be wide open to abuse by unscrupulous employers. For instance an employment agency could write a Minimum Wage Opt-Out into any contract potential staff would have to sign.

Unbelievably, they tried to claim it was against people’s ‘Human Right to work’ to have a Minimum Wage.

Dear Comrade, ...

'No Sweat'

'No Sweat' is a campaign against sweatshop working conditions supported by RMT.

It organises in solidarity with sweatshop workers in Britain and around the world, helping to build strong union organisation.

No Sweat also campaigns to expose the way in which big name brands and high street stores exploit sweatshop labour to make profits, and organises fundraising, protest actions and speaker tours by trade unionists.
