Steve Garelick, GMB Regional Officer said:
“The continued attacks made on workers from rate reduction without consultation to gratuities being hived off show that there is nothing wholesome in the service and gig economy sector.

“Today shows a frustration that the last two Conservative governments have created in an economy where companies play roulette with other's lives and ignore their obligations as humans.

“This is demonstration is a chance to make sure GMB is heard loud and clear, and highlights the low incomes and false contracts that plague workers in the UK.”
