2SFG to give 560 employees full pay for self-isolation period

Food manufacturer 2 Sisters Food Group (2SFG) will give all 560 employees at its Llangefni site full pay for the self-isolation period that has been imposed on them due to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.

All employees at the site were told to immediately self-isolate for 14 days after 61 employees tested positive for Coronavirus on 17 June 2020.

While the factory is closed, employees will be paid out of the £1 million hardship fund that has been set up by the organisation to financially support employees during the pandemic.

2SFG is currently putting measure in place to ensure that employees can return to work safely when the two-week period ends.

Peter Hughes, regional secretary at trade union Unite Wales, said: “Unite welcomes the decision by 2SFG to agree to our call for all employees to receive full pay during the period of self-isolation. The organisation has rightly recognised that its workforce should not suffer any financial detriment during this necessary process of quarantine.
