UK unions on Monday criticized recommendations to reduce detention in the country and resume personal work. They are “vague”, “inadequate” and “could endanger workers”.
They have also warned that vulnerable people, such as pregnant women, people with underlying conditions such as cancer, asthma or diabetes, or people over 70 years of age, may be forced to work without adequate protection to do so safely. .
With this in mind, unions, led by the UK’s Congress of Trade Unions (TUC), which represents around 5.5 million workers, have rated “bad bosses” according to current guidelines. They will be able to expose workers to infection (from coronavirus), without fear of the consequences. “
With this in mind, they have warned that workers may refuse to start work or go on strike.
