Wales TUC believes that stronger enforcement of workplace safety regulations is needed both to protect individual workers and their families, and to slow the spread of the virus.
Wales TUC General Secretary Shavanah Taj said:
“With coronavirus infections increasing, employers and government have a duty to do all they can to keep their workers safe.
“But many people who have to go into work are raising the alarm about their working conditions, including front line workers. We are hearing all the time from people who aren’t being given proper personal protection equipment or able to socially distance.

That is why we want to hear from people who have concerns, and pass those on to unions and government for immediate intervention, actively fighting for their right to a safe and decent workplace”.
