Today, Wednesday 23rd June, is the Travel Day of Action on which Prospect along with other workers, Unions and businesses are calling on the Government to support the safe return of International travel and provide further support to the travel sector. It is proposed that this can be done in a properly risk managed manner by properly implementing the Global Travel Taskforce’s plan for a traffic light system with an expanded green list when appropriate whilst maintaining a strong red list to protect the country against new variants. In addition to this the Government should provide a package of properly tailored financial support that recognises that the travel sector has not been to recover and generate income as quickly as had been hoped.
If members wish to support this day they can write to their MP, a template letter is available on the Prospect website at https://prospect.eaction.org.uk/traveldayofaction. Members can also voice their support on social media using the hashtag #TravelDayOfAction tagging their MP in if appropriate.
