“Good morning everyone. Just a short personal message from me to thank all of you – our members, our activists – for all the work that you are doing to protect our societies and our communities.”

“The work is so essential, and we will ensure that your union is there with you throughout this crisis. There to support you and look after you. And at the same time, we will also make sure that people in this country recognise the value of the work that you do.

“We will make sure that everybody knows the way in which you’ve gone that extra mile in order to protect our communities. ”

“You are doing so, so much to protect us, we have to protect you. And that will be our agenda for the future, once we are well, well beyond the crisis that we’re going through.”

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything that you are doing, and remember your union is with you.”
