A MOJACAR post office delivery team worker in in quarantine due to a possible indirect contact with a positive case of coronavirus in Albox, according to Spanish press reports.
On Tuesday the SiPcte Post and Telegraph Independent Professional Union Almeria branch published a post on its Facebook page criticising the fact the Mojacar post office remained open.
“We have to say to us it seems a real irresponsibility and will of course have consequences as all the office colleagues were in contact with this worker, and he said to them to go home to their family members as if it were nothing, and to top of off today they have had to return to their unit.
“We understand that said office should have been paralysed the moment all this was known.
“The SiPcte Union understands that the rights of the worker have been violated, and we will proceed to report this to the Labour Inspection and we will put our legal office at the disposal of the colleagues.”
The message ended, “We ask all of you to always report any case you know of as this very serious. Otherwise we will all fall although as sounds bad to say it like authentic ‘bedbugs’.”
