Unite have been demanding construction sites across Scotland to stop with immediate effect or lives would be put at risk. Yet, this week, we have been inundated by reports of workers using public/shared transport to comply with employer requests or face losing wages. We want to thank The Scottish Government on behalf of our members for expressly stating that sites not linked to health should now close, this is very welcome.
However, it’s extremely disappointing that firms continued to put profit ahead of people & didn’t act responsibly at an early stage. Margaret Wood
