Music, Poetry and Organising with Unite the Union!

Fair Fringe and Fair Hospitality are campaigns which ensure that workers receive the wages and working conditions they are entitled to. Workers make the Edinburgh Fringe but the festival doesn’t always work for them: too many Fringe workers are underpaid and treated poorly in precarious conditions.

Unfair, precarious and unsafe working conditions leave staff out of pocket and out of energy – Fringe employers must sort it out and sign up to Unite’s ‘Fair Hospitality Charter’. Come and hear from Unite members working in the hospitality sector and Unite organisers on the need for hospitality workers to receive a fair deal at work.

Featuring a fantastic line-up, the evening includes music and poetry from Scottish songwriter and Community Radio Host, Louis Rive; poet and writer, Kevin P Gilday; and poet and hospitality worker, Rosa Moxham. Hosted by the incomparable Susan Morrison.

Presented by FairPley Productions and Unite Edinburgh Branch in association with Art27 Scotland.
