Volunteer Trustees wanted to start up new charity focusing on Low-paid Workers’ Rights - IWLS
The IWLS is a new charity, founded in February, 2016, whose main purpose is to provide employment representation and advice to low paid migrant workers who are members of the Independent Workers’ Union of Great Britain (IWGB). The IWGB (http://iwgb.org.uk/) is a new, grassroots, trade union which caters mainly to low paid migrant workers and focusses on campaigning for such things as the Living Wage and sick pay, holidays, and pensions.
