MayDay - workers are the key to Gibraltar's economic recovery from the pandemic says Unite the Union

Workers are the key to Gibraltar's economic recovery from the pandemic, Unite the Union has said in its MayDay message, and austerity is not the answer.

Due to ongoing Covid 19 concerns, the celebrations were once again not held publicly, and all speeches and entertainment were broadcast produced exclusively on GBC Television.

Unite Regional Officer Sam Hennessy said the best way to combat the economic effects of the perfect storm of the pandemic and Brexit was long-term planning, rather than short term cuts and savings.
