Documenting casualisation

Documenting casualisation


Written by: IRR News Team

The TUC is seeking to interview black workers affected by the casualisation of the job market.

Austerity measures affect the black community disproportionately and, just this week, figures were released which show that the number of young people from ethnic minority backgrounds, aged 16-24, that have been unemployed longer than a year has risen by 50 per cent since the Coalition came to power.

Wilf Sullivan, the TUC’s Race Equality Officer would like to speak to people who have been forced into working through agencies, on temporary contracts and zero hours contracts. (Interviews can be conducted anonymously and you do not have to be a union member to participate.)

Wilf Sullivan can be contacted by email:
