Young Workers' Month is a UK Trades Union movement initiative to strengthen the voices of young people in the community and in the workplace
Yesterday, we launched our brand new HEAR MY VOICE campaign to support workers at HMV stores in the UK.
This comes just a day since the announcement that 1,500 jobs will go and between 60-100 stores will close this week.
Whilst the pundits talk about HMV’s failure and what it should have done and should do we at youngworkersmonth.org feel HMV workers are being totally forgotten about.
It must be awful to not know what’s going to happen to your job and if your store will close but there are employment rights that protect workers in these circumstances. That’s why we are visiting HMV stores with a letter to staff telling them about their rights, our support and trade union membership.
You’ll probably remember seeing those tweets from a disgruntled employee on the HMV twitter account…I think people may well laugh at them but to me they mean something much more serious, that staff feel under threat and out of the loop.
We need to show our support for workers in HMV now, we need you to sign our petition and share with your friends.
Please support HEAR MY VOICE.
