Zero-hours contracts should be outlawed. This is the wish expressed in a citizens’ initiative aimed at the parliament. If the initiative succeeds in collecting enough signatures, the parliament will debate and deliberate on the matter. Behind the initiative are young trade union activists that started Operaatio vakiduuni (Operation steady job) to fight against zero-hours contracts. They are demanding that zero-hours contracts be outlawed and part-time jobs should guarantee at least 18 hours of work per week.
