About us

Better than Zero is the nationwide campaign against precarious work.

Set up in 2015 by the Scottish Trade Union Congress, we take direct action against the most exploitative employers in Scotland in order to raise awareness of their ill-treatment of staff and train activists to organise their workplaces against exploitative working practices.

Join a union

Better than Zero is a campaign not a trade union. The best way to improve your wages and conditions is for as many colleagues in your workplace to join a trade union.

If your contract states that you have a recognised union then you should join that union and encourage others to do the same.

If not then please follow these steps to identify the best union for you.
