Offshore companies and unions are currently hiding behind government legislation of only paying Statutory Sick Pay to any employee who contracts covid 19 while at work (Cat C) or is identified as a close contact (Cat B) furthermore they are expecting you to isolate at home and infect your family. There does not seem to be any duty of care from contracting the virus at your work site. Nor does there seem to be any accountability. This needs to change as a great many employees are on zero hour contracts - meaning they only get paid for the days they work. It should be proposed that if you are sent home from offshore with a either a Cat B or Cat C identification you should be paid for the remainder of your trip. The unions are are only advising on what the government legislation is however they should be pushing for more for the work force. Everybody that is paying their union fees is being poorly represented by a corrupted system that seems more interested in keeping companies and lining their own pockets safe.
