Miliband: Abolish zero-hour contracts

 
"If I am prime minister, I will ban exploitative zero hours contracts, so we reward hard work again."
Speaking at an event in Huddersfield in April 2015, Ed Miliband promised to outlaw the “exploitative” contracts where workers are at company’s “beck and call” but have no security.

Mr Miliband said: “In our first year of government, Labour will pass a law that says if you’re working regular hours, you’ll get a regular contract… a legal right that will apply to all workers after 12 weeks.”

Sky News report that Mr Miliband first set out the 12-week proposal in 2013 at the Trades Union Congress (TUC) conference, but later backtracked.
