Union working with government on return to work
06 May 2020
THE UNITE Union has said it is working closely with the government and other trade unions to ensure that workers are adequately protected when the lockdown from coronavirus is lifted.
"We recognise that the task before the governments is an enormous one and that the right calls have to be made to avoid further death and ill health and to avert a deep recession. We are therefore committed to contributing fully to the back to work discussions, ensuring that ministers and employers hear your voice at the table.
"We are in the very early stages of discussion, with much progress yet to be made before your union can be confident that the plans to re-open the economy put you, your safety and your communities first."
