The Low Pay Commission (LPC) is conducting an evidence-gathering session 3-4pm Friday 9 September to hear about the experiences of current interns. The Trades Union Congress will be hosting the event at Congress House on Great Russell Street in Central London. Please note, the session may extend until about 4:30pm.
With the Government currently considering new guidance on unpaid work and the National Minimum Wage, and planning to instruct HMRC to target unpaid work in the autumn, now is a good time to remind the LPC of exactly why action is needed so that interns can get their minimum wage rights. We’d like interns working in Parliament to be well-represented and are looking for a maximum of ten interns to attend if possible.
If you are interesting in attending, please email Shelley.Phelps@unitepsbranch.org or Nick.Quin@unitepsbranch.org
