Today saw the introduction of an importance piece of legislation. New laws cracking down on zero-hour contracts and precarious employment come into effect today. This offers protection for workers in a range of industries.
I spoke with Niall Delaney on Ocean FM about the Tesco Strike taking place on Thursday 6th of December. No worker wants to be on strike, especially around the Christmas period. However, when 97% of balloted workers vote to strike then something is fundamentally wrong and Tesco is failing miserably to address it.
