Dolan bill to ban zero hour contracts launched in the Assembly

Sinn Féin MLA Jemma Dolan has launched a new bill to ban zero hour contracts in the north in an effort to give workers fairness and certainty in employment.

The party’s workers’ rights spokesperson said:

“Today, I’m launching my bill in the Assembly to Ban Zero Hour contracts in the north.

“People employed under these contracts are faced with deep uncertainty and stress and no guarantees on what they will earn or what hours they will work. 

“This needs to change; workers and families deserve fairness and certainty. 

“This Bill will replace zero-hour contracts with banded hour contracts, which will ensure workers are given guarantees over their minimum and maximum working hours each week. 

“Over the next number of weeks, I am encouraging trade unions, businesses, workers and MLAs to support workers and families and Sinn Féin’s attempt to ban these contracts.”
