REVEALED: UK GOVERNMENTS PANDEMIC CONTEMPT FOR WORKERS

The TUC have called for leadership that respects and values workers, most especially during times of national crisis following revelations then Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, refused to involve trade unions, calling working people ‘work shy’ and ‘malingering’ – the very workers who kept the country running during the pandemic.

TUC's Assistant General Secretary has responded, saying that amid rising Covid cases the government pushed for people to return to workplaces without consulting workers and their unions regarding safety measures. Union concerns were disregarded due to a hostile attitude which in turn contributed to the UK having the highest Covid-related death rates in Europe.

Criticising the government's contempt for ordinary working people, the TUC have called for leadership that respects and values workers.
