Workers and Covid-19

This report assessing the risk to workers from the Covid-19 pandemic. It contains labour market analysis showing least 44 per cent of the British workforce (14 milion) are at risk of loss of earnings. The figures are contained in a new CLASS briefing which includes interviews with 12 senior trade union officials representing under-threat sectors like manufacturing, hospitality and social care. The unions - representing millions of workers - report a complete lack of faith that government financial measures will end up in the pockets of workers.
