We’re also campaging  against zero-hour contracts in Plymouth this Saturday (3rd August) from 12pm at Place de Brest (Plaza by Barclays Bank).







Youth Fight for Jobs London organiser, Helen Pattison, a victim of zero-hour contracts herself, said “Sports Direct, Buckingham Palace, the Con-Dem government, the list goes on and on of companies and institutions messing around their staff with zero-hour contracts.”



“Sports Direct uses zero-hour contracts to exclude at least 90% of staff from the company’s bonus scheme, while trying to pass itself off as a model employer. Workers on zero-hour contracts get no holiday or sick pay making money even tighter at home.”



“Youth Fight for Jobs with our new initiative ‘Are you Sick of your Boss?’ will be protesting outside Sports Direct to demand decent contracts for workers and an end to zero-hour contracts.”



“Youth Fight for Jobs campaigns for decent jobs for young people, with guaranteed hours on a living wage. We stand against bullying and harassment at work and for decent pay and conditions for young people.”



Youth Fight for Jobs was set up in 2009 to raise the blight of mass youth unemployment. We organised the 330-mile Jarrow March for Jobs and helped organise protests against Workfare in 2012. We have just launched the ‘Are you Sick of your Boss?’ campaign tackling under-unemployment. We are backed nationally by Unite, PCS, RMT, CWU, UCU, and TSSA trade unions.
