Zero-hours and short-hours survey

Zero-hours contracts and short-hours working are growing problems in today’s workplace.

Under zero-hours contracts the worker has no guaranteed hours. Short-hours contracts are where workers have only a few guaranteed hours each week. Members may also be getting fewer hours than they need with incomes suffering as a result.

The Union is gathering evidence on the use of zero-hours and short-hours contracts and more generally on the hours members work. It would be appreciated if you could take a few minutes to answer the questions below.

Any information given in this survey will be treated confidentially. Information that might identify individual members will not be shared with outside organisations including employers.

Usdaw will use the results from this survey to support and evidence our campaign. Information on how we process and store personal data can be found in our privacy notice.
