Stop domestic servitude in the UK #NoToSlavery

The removal of the basic rights of migrant domestic workers and the introduction of a visa which ‘ties’ them to their employer has enslaved migrant domestic workers. If they flee abuse and exploitation, their tied status means they have no redress.

On 1st April Unite, J4DW and Kalayaan presented this petition with 1,000 signatures to number 10 Downing Street to tell the prime minister that we do not need to live again the horrifying abuse of the past. 

We want to collect 1,000 more signatures for Monday 16th June so please consider signing up and circulating.
