    Workers Fight for Their Toilet Rights
    Fri Feb 21, 8:42 AM ET

    LONDON (Reuters) - Workers of the world unite -- over the toilets.

    British union chiefs launched a campaign Friday to flush out employers who dock their workers' pay when they take a washroom break.

    The Trades Union Congress (TUC) "Gotta Go" campaign is targeting a legal loophole that says bosses must provide lavatories for staff, but aren't bound to let them go when they need to.

    "It's incredible to think that in the 21st century workers are still being penalized for going to the loo," TUC spokesman Brendan Barber said in a statement.

    "Employers clinging to Dickensian bathroom break policies should understand that if they trusted and respected their staff, they would end up with a healthier, better motivated, more productive workforce," he said.

    The TUC, a national trades union body, said it wants workers to have the right to go on paid time, without any loss of wages.

    It said it will name and shame employers who fail to provide adequate and clean toilet facilities.
