Agency Workers Template

Agency working and other casualisation tactics used by employers are a direct attack upon Unite organisation, terms and conditions and the right of Unite members to regulate their workplace. To build collective strength and real bargaining power, Unite Shop Stewards/Reps must organise all workers in the workplace regardless of employment status whether they are directly employed or indirectly employed agency workers. Agency workers must be organised in their place of work in the same way we would permanent workers. Failure to organise agency workers will inevitably lead to a casualised workforce and diminished bargaining power. This leaflet should help reps build collective strength - this means the involvement of all workers, with no worker left behind.
