Composited motion

Merged into composite 02

The recent pandemic has exposed without doubt that SSP is not fit for purpose and is insufficient for people to survive on. Congress asks that the TUC leads a campaign, working with the Labour Party to introduce a scheme which includes the legislation needed to enforce it, that will place a levy on those employers who fail to pay company sick pay. This will then be used to fund an increase in SSP to enable workers to receive a living wage whilst they are off sick.
