CALLS have been made for zero-hour work contracts to be abolished.
Sean Hoyle, Portsmouth South parliamentary candidate for the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (Tusc), says the arrangement is exploitive.
Yesterday marked a Global Day of Action against zero-hour contracts, which Tusc believes traps millions or workers in ‘poverty pay jobs.’
Mr Hoyle said: ‘Portsmouth needs a pay rise. Tusc calls for jobs that pay a Living Wage of £10 per hour, with guaranteed hours and trade union rights as standard.’
Tusc is standing 16 anti-cuts election candidates across Portsmouth.
