Key issues

  • Job security: investment, fair sourcing, information and consultation rights, outsourcing, temporary and agency jobs.
  • Organisation and recruitment: no to no-go areas in plants and business parks, organising the supply chain, new areas.
  • Temporary/agency workers: an end to second-class pay and second-class jobs.
  • Pensions: final salary schemes.
  • Shorter working time: 35 hours - it's about time.
  • Pay: pay and productivity, tackling low pay.
  • Equalities: best-in-class family-friendly policies: 52 weeks' maternity leave on full pay (Ford); 10-days paid paternity leave (Jaguar and Visteon)
  • Equal pay
  • Eradicating sexual and racial harassment and discrimination.
