Trade Unions Congress report: Fixing the safety net – next steps in the economic response to coronavirus

The last few weeks have seen an unprecedented change in the economic situation of the UK. Since the Prime Minister announced a full ‘lockdown’ on the 23rd March, economic activity in the UK has been rightly restricted in the service of protecting public health.

This report sets out what the government must now do to protect jobs, provide proper sick pay for all and protect the livelihoods of those who lose their jobs.

Key concerns and consequential relevant recommendations include:

  • Protect jobs
  • Sick pay for all
  • Fixing our social safety net
  • Work with unions and business
