Dolan hails progress on Bill to ban Zero Hour Contracts

Sinn Féin MLA Jemma Dolan has welcomed progress on her Bill to Ban Zero Hour Contracts and give certainty to workers.  

Speaking after the Bill was passed to the next stage in the Assembly, the Sinn Féin workers’ rights spokesperson said:

“I am pleased that that the Assembly has backed my Bill to ban Zero-Hour Contracts and it will now progress to the next stage.

“This legislation will give certainty to workers over what hours they are working and what their wages will be at the end of the week or month.

“Workers and families continue to feel the pressure from rising living costs and hikes to energy prices and they need guarantees over their income and working hours. It’s time to ban Zero Hour Contracts.”

Teachers deserve a fair pay deal that reflects their incredible work and commitment to our young people.

@ChrisHazzardSF joined with a delegation of teachers from the North to hand in a letter to the British Prime Minister calling for an immediate pay deal for workers.

Education workers deserve fair pay & working conditions.

With one party’s boycott of the Executive ongoing, the British Govt must urgently bring forward a pay deal for workers here.

We need an Executive restored now, & all parties working together to support workers & services.

In any other walk of life the person presiding over such a colossal failure would be sacked. The Minister for Justice is clearly not the person to restore people's confidence in public safety and she should resign.
