Take action

BetterThanZero is a grassroots campaign which supports workplace organising and uses collective direct action to force employers to improve working conditions.

You can email us to join the network, to organise your own local action, or to plan actions at your own workplace - betterthanzero@stuc.org.uk or via Facebook

If you’d like to get involved the first step is to tell us about your workplace and what you’d like to change about it. Then sign up for a Take Control course so you can learn about how to speak to your fellow workers, organise to improve conditions, and combine to form a union.

We also run national campaigns and have local groups covering Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Dundee, Dumfries and Edinburgh. Contact betterthanzero@stuc.org.uk if you want to get involved.

For obvious reasons we cannot disclose some of our upcoming actions, but you can find a list of some of our scheduled events and courses here.
