Coronavirus - protecting workers

The coronavirus pandemic poses huge risks to workers’ health, jobs and livelihoods. Unions stand ready to work with government to do everything we can to protect health, jobs, and livelihoods.
Our objectives

We believe that government must:

  1. ensure that business support measures are conditional on support for jobs. This can’t just be a bailout for boardrooms.
  2. fix the sick pay system to provide better sick pay for all.
  3. introduce targeted support for parents who need to take time out of work to care for kids
  4. provide more help to families – and a stimulus to the economy
  5. bring together a taskforce of unions and employers to help co-ordinate the national effort. 

Take a look at our latest economic response to coronavirus

Across the board many industries and those working within them are going to be impacted by the coronavirus, and necessary measures taken to reduce its spread. Jobs and livelihoods are at serious risk, and without unprecedented government action, the consequences could last well beyond the immediate nature of the virus.
