The Welsh Government and the Wales TUC have today issued a joint statement on Fair Work in Wales and the response to the COVID-19 crisis.

The statement can be read here:

Wales TUC General Secretary, Shavanah Taj said:

“In this crisis Fair Work is more important than ever and we’re pleased to sign this statement with Welsh Government recognising that fact.  

“Through our affiliate unions and our own Wales TUC whistleblowing hotline we are still hearing of far too many employers who are continuing to put their workers at risk.

“It’s vital that these employers understand that there will be serious consequences for their actions and that support from public funds will be closed off to them if they don’t keep their workers safe.

“We look forward to working with the Welsh Government and other social partners to make sure that the welcome steps that Welsh Government are taking on protecting workers are complied with and fully enforced. Together we can ensure all workers are getting the equipment and support they need to keep them safe.”
