We Can ’t Afford to Wait for COVID-19 Vaccines To Be Rolled Out. Here’s What We Can Do to Curb the Virus Now
On Jan. 7, 2021, the U.S. hit another grim milestone, for the first time recording over 300,000 new cases of COVID-19 and over 4,000 deaths from the infection in one day. Across the country, hospitals and intensive care units are now under enormous strain trying to treat so many sick people. And if a new, more transmissible variant of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, were to take hold in the U.S. as it has in the U.K., as seems plausible, our health system could pass its breaking point. It’s all too easy to become numb to the toll and accept these daily figures as a new normal while waiting for the vaccine...

Recovery: What Are We Talking About?
According to this study, the existence of a large informal sector, without access to social security and therefore very vulnerable, has had and will have a strong regressive impact on the income and quality of life of millions of people. Formal jobs were also affected as many people were laid off; others kept their jobs, but suffered a significant decrease in their income, due to the reduction of hours worked or to the fact that they were sent home with unpaid vacations or leave with lower wages. The effect of these measures was more severe in our country due to the absence of unemployment insurance. A remarkable phenomeno...

British Gas staff vote to accept changes to their terms and conditions
Office and call centre staff working for British Gas have this week voted overwhelmingly to accept a series of revised proposals, negotiated by UNISON, affecting their pay, working hours and leave.
