GMB, Britain's general union, has welcomed the Chancellors call to work with unions but says workers as well as businesses must be protected amid the Coronavirus crisis.

Tim Roache, GMB General Secretary, said:

“The Chancellor is right that we need to work together to get through this, and GMB is willing to play our part.

“It’s crucial the Government acts urgently to secure jobs, wages and living standards while keeping workers on the front line safe.

“Support for business is welcome, but we need support for workers too because bills won’t go away while people self isolate. 

“We need a sector by sector approach to securing the economy, mitigating losses now and crucially planning now for investment in recovery.”
