STOKE & NEWCASTLE TUSC  backs campaign against Zero Hour contracts and for a Living Wage of £10 an hour

TUSC organiser Andy Bentley said, “We are in Newcastle today as part of TUSC’s election campaign. We will be standing candidates in Newcastle to fight against the government and local council’s endless cuts, closures and privatisation.

Today we are highlighting the Tory government’s plan to hand over £1.2 billion worth of front line NHS services to private companies in Stoke, Newcastle and the rest of Staffordshire. This must be stopped. But we are also supporting YFJ’s and the Baker’s union’s fight against zero hour contracts and for a proper living wage”
