Protect Our Protectors

Back our campaign to get proper protective equipment to the frontline

Key workers are on the frontline fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.

Caring for our sick and our elderly, looking after children and keeping them safe, we make sure there is food on the  shelves, keeping the lights on and the water running. Key workers are keeping our country going.

We are weeks into fighting Covid-19 and the lack of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) has become a crisis within a crisis.   

Frontline workers are being exposed to unreasonable and unnecessary risks by the government’s lack of planning to provide  adequate PPE. We demand the government - and employers - do far more to protect our protectors. 

We are seeing key workers getting sick and some are dying. Every day key workers are out serving the public fearing that they will be next. Some are being bullied by managers when they speak out about health and safety at work. We can't go on like this.

Letter to Boris Johnson

Dear Prime Minister,

We need you to hear us loud and clear - right now. We are insisting that you take urgent action to protect key workers' lives and the lives of their families as they keep our country going.

Key workers are being exposed to coronavirus on the frontline. They need and deserve to be protected by you as they protect and serve the public -  whether in hospitals, care homes, schools, businesses or the community.

We demand PPE to protect our key workers in the call of duty -  and testing to keep key workers safe.

We need transparency from government about PPE supplies and production. National and regional availability levels should be published weekly to ensure all key workers get what they need.

Please protect our protectors. Now.
