Foot and mouth workers miss out on special payments

Front line
environmental workers battling the foot and mouth epidemic are being penalised
for working long hours and in dreadful conditions, according to public service
union Unison.

The workers,
dealing with public safety during the foot and mouth crisis, have been told by
the Environment Agency for England and Wales, that they will not receive
special payments of £20 per week day and £40 a day for weekend and bank
holidays.

These payments
were introduced by the Ministry for Agriculture Food and Fisheries (MAFF).
