Stop precarious work on 7 October

Read this article in:

5 September, 2012On 7 October, the World Day for Decent Work, join the IndustriALL Global Union campaign to STOP precarious work.

Secure jobs are becoming more and more rare, while agency work, contract work and temporary work are taking over. For young people, there is practically no other option – the only jobs on offer are insecure. 

Unions are pushing against this tide by organizing precarious workers, fighting laws that expand precarious work and mobilizing in support of secure employment with good pay and working conditions.

IndustriALL Global Union invites you to join the action on or around 7 October. Start taking action now and:

  • Join the Cause on FaceBook and sign up 5 friends
  • Pledge an action that you will take or support on 7 October
  • Send us your story of agency work
  • Watch the latest video on precarious work

There are no limits on the forms of action that you and your union can take this 7 October to support the global fight against precarious work. Actions could include street protests, seminars, membership meetings, press conferences, public meetings, rallies, workplace actions, letter writing campaigns and delegations to governments. 

IndustriALL has produced print-ready artwork of posters and leaflets in several languages available for download on its website here: www.industriall-union.org/issues/social-justice-and-globalization/stop-precarious-work

Don’t forget to send us photos and reports of your action once it has taken place. The address to send your action information is [email protected].
