Angela McGowan, CBI Northern Ireland Director, said:
“When the updated essential business list is published, it will provide much needed clarity to NI firms. Protecting employees’ lives and livelihoods remains the top concern for Northern Irish firms. Companies want to ensure essential products and services keep going, while prioritising people’s safety. It will also help the public and family members of critical workers to understand just how important these employees are.
“It’s important business, the unions and NI government work closely together to ensure both employers and employees have the support they need during these unprecedented times. CBI NI is proud to have played a leading role in the creation of the labour market forum.”
