McDonald Letter to Secretary of State for Business

Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, Ed Miliband, and Labour’s Shadow Employment Rights Secretary, Andy McDonald, have tonight written to the Business Secretary to raise concerns about the Government asking workers who can’t work at home, including those in manufacturing and construction, to go back to work tomorrow morning ahead of official safety guidance being published.

Urging the Business Secretary to put in place a number of measures to protect workers, they write: “Ordering a return to work with 12 hours notice and no official guidance on how workers can keep safe is irresponsible and wrong.“
