Workers' rights


Labour MEPs have delivered action to protect and enhance people’s workplace rights:

• Ensuring part-time workers have same rights as full-time workers

• Strengthening protections for workers exposed to hazardous substances

• Giving working parents the right to maternity and paternity leave

Brexit puts all this at risk when there is still so much to do.

Labour MEPs’ agenda for reform includes:

• Banning exploitative zero-hours contracts throughout the EU

• New laws on work-life balance including the right to paid carers’ leave

• Ending the exploitation of migrant workers and undercutting of wages

Labour MEPs are working with socialist sister parties to reform the EU and deliver progressive change for people in Britain.
