Hermes to help couriers self-isolating from COVID-19
The company say they will help find someone to deliver on their behalf and guarantee that their rounds will be kept open for them for when they return.
Mick Rix, GMB National Officer, said: “Hermes have once again taken the industry lead and shown the gig economy how things should be done. By setting up this fund to assist those couriers they are not just protecting people who deliver for them, they are helping to keep the British public safe. “This is a very welcome step in the right direction, and all employers across the UK shout follow their example.”
