Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
unions in the UK are very reluctant to get involved with part timers, even if it's not by the employee's choice as unions believe everyone should have a full time job.

This is a very, very grave mistake for the union to make.

First you organize. Then you mobilize. And then you walk out on all the insecure part-time shit. En bloc.

If you have lost your ability to mobilize, to the extent that you can't even write a Labour government's legislation anymore, then you are in no position to refuse to organize part-timers.

When did British unions lose the plot?
