Petition text

Please listen to the recommendation of the Matthew Taylor Review and 'extend the Information and Consultation Regulations to include employees and workers and reduce the threshold for implementation from 10% to 2% of the workforce making the request.'

The UK needs a decent worker voice law.

Why is this important?

Our employment system is creaking under the strain of modern work. It’s not fit for purpose and people (particularly new parents) are slipping through the cracks.

A Government review has ‘recommended’ that if 2% of staff demand to be asked about something - anything from flexible working to a pay rise - it should automatically trigger a formal consultation.

Together, we can push this recommendation into a full blown right. Making it easier for everyone to get better rights and benefits at work.


Next step - spread the word

Please can you email Greg Clark MP to tell him why you think a 'worker voice' law would improve working life here in the UK? He has the power to create the law.

Here’s some suggestions for what to say:

Talking points

  • Our employment system is creaking under the strain of modern work. It’s not fit for purpose and people (particularly new parents) are slipping through the cracks. A 'worker voice' law could change that by making it easier for people to speak out and demand their employers take their concerns seriously.
  • The 'worker voice' law is a simple change to existing legislation. And it's something both the government and opposition are keen to agree on: making it easier for everyone to get better rights and benefits at work.
  • If you have any experiences of trying to change something at work, you could talk about how much easier it would have been with a 'worker voice' law only needing 2% of the workforce
  • Remember to be polite - we don't want to give the Secretary of State a reason to not take our concerns seriously.
