The T & G union is calling for the rights of bar staff to be protected if the Government introduces 24-hour opening.
The union, representing bar staff, wants proper protection for bar staff’s working conditions.
Brian Revell, national organiser at the T & G said, “We have put a three point plan to the Home Office reflecting the concerns of our many members who work in pubs.”
One of the union’s demands is that employers must ensure that members of staff released from work late at night have a safe means of returning home, with the employer bearing the cost of taxis as required.
Revell reiterated, “The T & G does not oppose 24-hour opening but is very clear that the rights of bar staff must be fully taken into account.”
