Recruiting Contact Tracers On Zero Hour Contracts

Contact Tracing

This week Richard Boyd Barrett TD revealed that a private company, CPL, was recruiting contacts tracers on zero hour contracts.

These workers play a vital role in chasing down Covid-19 but there was little value being put on their work. They were also to be employed without a proper sick pay scheme.

Nothing better reveals how the Irish state is dealing with this pandemic. It is failing to invest properly in a Test and Trace capacity to crush this virus.

After  Richard Boyd Barrett revealed what CPL was doing, there was an immediate statement claiming there was ‘ an unintentional error’ in the contract.

It is more credible to think they tried to cover their tracks after being exposed.
