Close high street banks and building societies due to Coronavirus

Petition Details

Those working in high street banks and building societies are at risk of contracting Coronavirus as we have contact with customers, money and customers' cards. Many staff have to deal with face to face transactions and have been given no protective wear.

Additional Information

Many staff working in head offices are allowed to work from home but staff that work in-branch and deal with customers on a daily basis are being asked to continue to work on the frontline. With no gloves, no protective wear, no consideration that we are at a higher risk especially touching money and the machines. Customers in the mean time can withdraw from cash point or use internet banking. This is just short term until corona ceases.
