The general secretary of the UGT in Catalonia, Camil Ros, has recommended the use of the mask in jobs in which attention to the public or the elderly has to be carried out. Ros has asked “to do an exercise in which he has to send responsibility and not fear” and has asked to wait a few days to see if there is a rebound in infections. Even so, he has indicated that “there is no general problem” about the use of the mask at work.
The union leader has also asked that companies transfer the rise in product prices to wages so that workers do not lose more purchasing power.
Ros has participated in an assembly of delegates to Tarragona to deal with the claims of next May 1.
