Union advice:

Working people are on the frontline of the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. Employers have an obligation to ensure that workers are safe. The FSU is committed to protecting workers’ rights and supporting our members through this global health emergency.

What a safe workplace looks like

It’s not your job to keep your workplace safe

Every employer has a responsibility to protect the health of workers. If a workplace chooses to ignore the basics of COVID safety, that’s putting us all at risk of a worsening pandemic.

Is your employer not doing this?
