Network Rail to force primary sponsors to pay for competency assessments and recerts.
This petition had 2,698 supporters
I recently had an Engineering Supervisor assessment carried out on me for almost £800.00. I think this is sacrilegious. I am an agency worker and also a zero-hour contractor. I will also have to do it for all my other competences like COSS, Level B - Switching and Strapping, Level A - Procedure B, etc.By default, a zero-hour contractor is at a dead-end with most of us suffering in silence.
I want this petition to have a positive impact on the lives of all Network Rail zero-hour contractors that are finding it difficult grinding out a living with an average of 2 to 3 shifts in a week (if you're lucky) and then forking out this same insufficient, inadequate, poor and miserable pay to various training centres (It's like robbing Peter to pay Paul). This is keeping all Network Rail zero-hour contractors in perpetual penury and modern day slavery.
