Commenting on the re-opening of indoor hospitality today (Monday), TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:
“As indoor hospitality reopens, workers’ safety must come first.
“Good ventilation is critical. All tasks that can be completed outside should be. And every workplace should have their doors and windows wide open.
“If workplaces aren’t Covid-secure, coronavirus cases could rebound again. High vaccination rates are no excuse for employers to slack on safety at work.
“And the government should make sure everyone can afford to self-isolate if they need to. That means making sure everyone can get statutory sick pay, and raising it to the level of the real Living Wage.”
