Look who’s calling for the ‘reopening’ to speed up… May 17, 2021

On the day that non-essential retail reopens look at who is pushing for speedier returns to work. Why none other than IBEC.

“Clarity from Government on the timing of graduated workplace reopening is now key for companies in order to reignite collaboration, culture and confidence in their workforce,” said Ibec CEO Danny McCoy.

“Government’s roadmap must be aligned with an ongoing review of reopening timelines that reflects the risk reduction that the vaccine programme is delivering.

And as usual the pressure is to shorten timelines…

“This means a potential earlier gradual return to workplaces than the previously flagged expected return time of September,” he said.

Andrew Flood has long flagged this dynamic of pushing the government to ease restrictions ahead of agreed timescales. And the thing is that the vaccination programme while moving forward is far from a point where such decisions could be made. Of course it is possible that were the programme to accelerate then some decisions regarding restrictions might be eased – but to be effectively pressing for this at this point is, typically, premature.

“And the thing is that the vaccination programme while moving forward is far from a point where such decisions could be made.”. I would add the point that reimposing restrictions would be more than difficult, if not impossible.

Yep, you can see it all around – people out and about. That said if there was a super spike of some sort then there’d be no choice but to reimpose but IBEC et al are playing with fire by demanding too much too soon.
