TUC Calls For An End To Agency Worker Loophole
Commenting on today’s (Thursday) report on agency workers by the Resolution Foundation, which shows agency workers are regularly paid less even when doing the same job as other colleagues, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:
“Two people working next to each other, doing the same job, should get the same pay rates. But too often agency workers are treated like second-class citizens.
“That’s because there’s a loophole in the law that allows bad bosses to deny agency workers equal pay.
“It’s time to end this Undercutters’ Charter and for the government to scrap this loophole. It’s recent review into modern employment practices called for precisely that.”
