Andy McDonald – 2020 Statement on TUC’s Report

Below is the text of the comments made by Andy McDonald, the Shadow Secretary for Employment Rights and Protection, on 27 April 2020.

With the country pulling together during this time of crisis, Labour is working constructively with the Government to stop the spread of the coronavirus and support workers and businesses.

We want to ensure no stone is left unturned to keep people safe now and in the future, and the Government must go further to provide security to people in and out of work.

It is not enough to just clap for our carers and key workers, we must build a better society that protects them and all workers, strengthens their rights and properly rewards them for what they do.
