The Campaign has been launched to highlight and tackle the problem of high temperatures in workplaces. We feel that workers should not be forced to endure high temperatures without adequate measures being taken by the employer to control the effect of heat. The Campaign therefore calls for the government to provide clear, coherent and enforceable requirements for employers about how to combat heat in the workplace - including the introduction of a maximum working temperature of around 30oC and 27oC for those doing strenuous work. Once the temperature reaches the maximum limit, then control measures must be implemented to reduce the heat and/or the effect of the heat on their employees. We call for the increased surveillance and enforcement by the Health and Safety Executive in this area. We need clear legislation which is easy to enforce and in which employers understand their obligations and employees understand their rights.

Based on research commissioned by the TUCG, the book examines why costs have risen for all items of expenditure, ranging from housing and child care to food and transport. He makes practical proposals on how these costs can be reduced. He also delivers an uncompromising message to the leaders of all mainstream Westminster Parties: it is time to end the politics of austerity, an ideological project to cut the size of the state permanently.
