Hungary: The mask is not a muzzle, you will hear our voices! – MASZSZ, SZEF, ÉSZT

No one should die because they work!

The mask is not a muzzle! You will hear our voice!

Due to the restricted freedom of movement, we do an online campaign for real OSH measures, functioning OSH management and governance, involvement of workers reps and organisations – made even more necessary by the Covid-19 pandemic. Three of ETUC affiliates in Hungary (MASZSZ, SZEF, ÉSZT) issued a joint statement and worded strong criticism on the OSH situation in Hungary and calling for revisiting OSH for the post pandemic period.
