It calls for “the responsibility of all” to strictly respect the measures imposed. “Today, slackening in compliance with the rules is leading the authorities to take drastic measures that could have or even should have been avoided,” she points out.
The risk of bankruptcy is real for thousands of businesses, with its share of personal, human, family and social tragedies, warns UWE.
“The fight against the pandemic cannot be done to the detriment of the economy and therefore, in cascade, of employment. We must let the companies run, ”she insists. A general containment like that of March-April would be catastrophic. It would plunge the country permanently into a structural crisis, she fears. “In addition to the budgetary and economic crisis, there is the risk of a financial crisis,” warns the Walloon employers’ organization.
For her, we must therefore learn to live with this virus – “and for a long time to come, probably” -, to carry out targeted, intelligent actions to limit its spread in order to preserve the health care system and the economy.
Current studies show that the workplace is a minor source of outbreaks of contamination, insists the UWE, asking companies not to relax their efforts. “Solidarity and respect for others and their health were decisive elements in getting through the first wave. Today, slackening in compliance with the rules is leading the authorities to take drastic measures that could have or even should have been avoided. “
The employers’ organization therefore pleads for more severe and more targeted controls and sanctions to be decided and carried out in order to prevent the shutdown of the whole company and the saturation of health care services.
