COVID-19: EFFAT launches new page on their website

New page highlighting impact on EFFAT sectors & affiliates’ updates

The COVID-19 outbreak is having a seismic impact on the world and the way people live together with inevitable consequences on the working conditions of all workers.
Representing 25 million workers from farm to fork, the EFFAT sectors are particularly affected.

In recognition of the severity of this health and social crisis, EFFAT has already designated the coronavirus response a political priority, today stepping up its campaign under the hashtags #WeFeedEurope and #HealthBeforeProfit”.

To facilitate cross-border exchange and solidarity, EFFAT has set up a dedicated page outlining the impact of #COVID19 on the EFFAT sectors and collecting national best practices, governmental and social partners agreements put in place to tackle this emergency.

Over the coming weeks, EFFAT will fight alongside its affiliates to guarantee better health and safety protection and improved working conditions for the millions of agri-food workers, many of whom are putting in extra shifts to make sure food is available for the whole of Europe during this emergency.

EFFAT will keep exposing the huge repercussions of this crisis for millions of jobs in the tourism sector and call for measures that protect workers from unemployment and loss of income.
