Alison comments on Ed Miliband's zero hour contract report recommendations

Welcoming the news that Labour have pledged to put an end to abuse left open by zero hour contracts Alison said:

I welcome Ed Miliband’s commitment today to act on zero hour contracts. Having investigated and in conjunction with some of my parliamentary colleagues produced a report into the effects Zero Hour contracts can have on the lives of people who would rather have regular guaranteed employment I am pleased that a future Labour government is committed to addressing the issue. It is important that steps are taken to prevent the exploitative nature of the contracts.

The recommendations from the Pickavance Review recognise how for some people these contracts suit their circumstances but how for other people they can be open to abuse. I believe this demonstrates that Labour understand the living standard problems faced by people at the moment and how we want to act to improve these if elected to form a government next year.”
