Agency and Migrant Workers

By Dr Sonia McKay

Who is the employer?

By Fang Lee Cooke, Jill Earnshaw and Jill Rubery

Agency working is high on the political agenda. A draft European directive means that the UK will have to introduce a new law to give a right to no less favourable treatment for agency workers, compared to directly employed workers. Agency work is also the subject of political debate, due to the poor terms and conditions that many agency workers experience, particularly those in low paying jobs and significantly where they are migrant workers. For this reason a publication on agency work and migrants is timely.

This new report looks at the growing complexity of the employment relationship, the shift towards individual statutory employment protection and the need for trade unions to organise and bargain beyond the enterprise level if terms and conidtions of employment are to be defended and extended. Based on original research, the authors outline the nature of the new forms of employment including agency workers, self-employed, outsourced work, PPP and PFI arrangements and use a call centre as a case study to highlight the multi-agency nature of the modern employment relationship. The paper concludes by suggesting six areas of policy and employment law changes aimed at identifying where the real power lies in the employment relationship, thereby providing better protection for those working in multi-employer situations.

Federation News Spring 2012: Meeting the Challenges of Age

Published in June 2012

Now on Special Offer

This edition of Federation News focuses on the issues challenging trade unions in relation to the extreme ends of the age spectrum, both in the workplace and within unions themselves. At one end of the spectrum we have mass youth unemployment and deskilling, while at the other, poverty or blatant exploitation of the elderly. Both have to be challenged. We should fous our sights once again on the compatibility of a full employment economy and a reduced retirement age with a comfortable pension.
