The RMT have been asked to research the issue of whether self-employed/ agency-employed members meet the legal tests for being treated as employees of end user (LU)
We are especially interested in copy of contracts, which will remain private and will be returned, and details about how members actually work (eg whether provide own uniform/ equipment, who controls how do job, subject to disciplinary proceedings). Depending on feedback, we may carry out a survey of our members to get a fuller picture.
However, if you can help please email
