What ever job you have, whether it is the most junior role in the firm or you provide a service that many take for granted,  I believe all workers have an entitlement to a fair income, decent working conditions and dignity in the workplace. This is at the heart of the work we do on employment rights.

That means having that basic employment right of being getting sick pay if and when you fall ill. It means that if you are a university tutor or a waitress that you get adequate hours at work so that you earn a living income and can pay your household bills, not just getting the hourly living wage.

If you are a woman at work, that you know that you are being paid the same as your male peers when you get that promotion. If you face the awful prospect of losing your job, that the years of union membership and fighting for better rights is not lost and that you will be able to access your enhanced redundancy payment. And it means fighting for workers so that they can come together and negotiate with their employer.
