End Zero Hour Contracts (Otautahi/Christchurch)
Zero hour contracts, where people have no guarantees around their hours of work are common for many people. Having no guaranteed hours leave many working people under employed, subject to unpredictable work patterns, leaves people vulnerable to loosing hours for taking sick leave or raising concerns with their employer.
This forum will also discuss the idea of establishing a progressive network and regular forum to discuss local progressive ideas and campaigns.
