Support for members and loved ones affected by coronavirus (COVID-19)

We have put together a questionnaire with the BFAWU to work out where exposure has occurred and how employers responded. Everyone who has been exposed to coronavirus (COVID-19) at work at any time can help. By completing the questionnaire below, you will help us to work with the BFAWU to support you and your fellow members.

The more information we gather, the better the BFAWU can campaign about the issues raised (and we can establish whether you might have a personal injury claim).
