This is HUGE news! A unitedstripper member just won a tribunal case for worker status!

" UVW and Decrim Now are celebrating after a judge at an employment tribunal ruled that dancers in a London strip clubs Browns and Horns have worker status. Until now, dancers were misclassified as 'independent contractors', which means they had no access to even the most basic rights at work. The new ruling now opens the door for dancers to claim workers' rights such as paid annual leave, a guaranteed pay for all hours worked, the right to take maternity or sick leave without the risk of termination, protection against workplace harassment and the right to organise through a trade union. The club owners defended their claim that the dancers were not workers, but the tribunal rejected this claim"
