Following the announcement from the Prime Minister on Saturday, that from Thursday 5th November as we enter a second national lockdown, the manufacturing sector has specifically been told can continue to go to work. Whilst we know a number of members continue to work from home, there are key sectors which need supporting and members facilities which will remain open. We have advice on our website from past stories on operating a safe workplace at https://www.mta.org.uk/members-area/resources/coronavirus.
We are also pleased to see the extension of the furlough scheme into December. This scheme has been utilise by Members and offers support at these challenging times.
We would like to remind members there is advice on our website and access to Croner through your membership offering advice on workplace safety, current legislation and relevant advice. This can be found at https://www.mta.org.uk/coronavirus-advice
