I actually saw this article just now and shared with a few of my Angard Colleagues saying pretty much the same things here
I've had perhaps 20 cancelled shifts in almost two years including one this week. What I wonder though is what is defined as "Cancelled at short notice"? Is that 2 hours? 6 hours? I tend to be cancelled 6-10 hours earlier and I cannot recall what the shortest notification has been without going through allllll the confirmation and cancellation texts I've had.
Might be worth reading through some of the comments on the BBC article itself too if you scroll down the article and find the button.

"Under proposals, they could receive the full value of the shift cancelled or three times the hourly minimum wage for each hour cancelled"
But how would this be enforced ? Zero hours contract staff have no bargaining power. In practice I suspect they won't receive work if they were to claim.
