Agency Workers Bill: 2nd March

A key part of the Warwick Agreement was a recognition of the need to protect Agency Workers. These workers are often subjected to considerably less employment rights than permanent employees.

Paul Farrelly MP has introduced a Private Members' Bill to deliver much needed rights for agency workers. The bill is due to have its second reading on 2nd March 2007 - a Friday - and it needs to win a vote of at least 100 MPs to make progress.

If this bill becomes law it will meet a key part of our Warwick commitments and more importantly - provide real protection for a group of vulnerable workers.

Please encourage your MP to stay in London on Friday 2nd March 2007 and ensure they vote for the Bill.
