GMB Union has responded to the lifting of Plan B restrictions in England, which means it is no longer legally compulsory to wear face masks in indoor venues

Andy Prendergast, GMB National Secretary, said:

“Ending the requirement to wear face masks in busy indoor settings is premature and a change that is likely to hamper efforts to reduce the spread of the virus. 

“GMB members working in retail and on public transport have the right to feel safe;  it’s good many businesses still insist on face coverings.

“With the Government battling crises after crisis and negative headlines from all sides, a cynic might think unnecessary changes to covid safety rules are nothing more than a diversionary tactic.”
