Fair Fringe Campaign

That the Parliament welcomes the Fair Fringe campaign aimed at improving the wages and working conditions for all workers involved with the Edinburgh Fringe Festival; considers that the type of short and fixed-term work associated with festivals is particularly open to exploitation from unscrupulous employers, including wages going unpaid, low pay, sexual harassment in the workplace and excessively long hours; encourages all workers involved in the Fringe to become involved with the Fair Fringe campaign, and calls on all festival employers to sign up to Unite’s Fair Hospitality Charter.
