We’re making plans about how to tackle low pay and precarious work. We don’t have to put up with low pay, insecure hours, bullying bosses or dead end jobs. Workers are worth more and together we can win the changes we need. We’ve got local activists speaking, organisers from trade unions at the forefront of winning in Britain today including the BFAWU who are organising the McStrikes. We’ll have speakers on our research project on low pay and precarious work in Sheffield. We’ll be talking about our plans for training local activists up and how we can improve our communications to reach out to workers who want to win a better deal.
