The workers’ union Unite has written to the First and Deputy First Ministers calling for mass testing of employees across the meat processing sector in NI.

It follows on from a number of reported cases of coronavirus in meat factories in NI, including the Foyle plant in Omagh, Linden Foods and Moy Park. On Tuesday, Unite confirmed that a Moy Park employee Luciana Viviana da Silva had died from the virus, although there is no suggestion that the company was at fault.
