[2019] Motion 28 The inclusion of freelance workers in TUC policy

carried motion
Carried motion

Received from:

Congress acknowledges and applauds the work of the TUC in protecting workers from across all sectors in the UK.

In the growing ‘gig economy’ climate, we recognise that organising workers has become more complex and that TUC policy has had to adjust accordingly.

In campaigning for improved terms and conditions for the ‘falsely’ self-employed it is important to remember that many truly self-employed workers, particularly musicians and performers, are keen to maintain their self-employed status whilst still needing union representation.

Congress calls on the General Council to ensure that all policy work and consultation responses adequately represent freelancers as well as employed workers.

  • Add at end: “in whatever sector they work in.”
