‘One year on from the first national lockdown, there is still so much more to be done to protect jobs and livelihoods, and people’s safety at work.
But we’ve seen the breakthroughs that can happen when everyday people and trade unions pressure the government to step up.
It’s how we won sick pay from the first day of absence. The reason we secured a furlough scheme that saved 9 million jobs and a jobs scheme for young workers hardest hit by the pandemic.’
The TUC’s Megahone project says ‘Let’s come together again to demand a Workers’ Budget, to provide:
- A pay rise for all our key workers.
- Safe workplaces and sick pay for all.
- Decent jobs for everyone.
- Fair funding for our NHS and public services.’
