For the Government to suggest workers rely on employers' goodwill to keep their jobs will be scant reassurance

GMB, Britain’s General Union, has hit back at Local government minister Simon Clarke’s suggestion workers rely on employers taking a "sensible and compassionate" approach to self-isolation.

John Phillips, GMB Acting General Secretary, said:

"Holiday-makers already feel distressed and anxious as a result of chopping and changing Government advice, which has unleashed untold chaos on people’s lives.

“British travellers have been left up the creek without a paddle by muddled ministers.

“For them to now suggest workers left in limbo can rely on employers' goodwill alone to keep their jobs will be scant reassurance. “
