Specifically, the BPA has been working flat-out to boost and support the industry amid the current situations, with regular calls and correspondence with the UK and devolved Governments on everything from business support and key workers, to security and fishing.
To better assist the British ports, BPA asked the ports and maritime law firm Hill Dickinson, an Associate Member of the British Ports Association (BPA), to produce a short paper on the employment implications for UK ports as the shipping industry addresses the global coronavirus pandemic.
It is stated that the paper is in line with BPA’s Port Futures Programme which is a series of papers considering emerging and innovative trends in the port sector.
The paper focuses on how can employees deal with the UK lockdown, sickness/self-isolation payments and how to continue operations.
