Reinstating the pandemic unemployment payment at its highest level for some, but not all workers is unfair, according to the Music and Entertainment Association.

They're one of a number of groups that'll meet with the Tanaiste and Tourism Minister later to discuss supports.

The PUP's to be reintroduced at €350 , but only for workers who lost their jobs overnight as a result of the latest restrictions.

Workers who are already on the payment at €250 or €203 will not get an increase.

Spokesperson for the Music and Entertainment Association of Ireland, Matt McGranaghan, outlines what he hopes to hear at today's meeting.

"Taking a person's ability to work, or close their industry down for effectively 90 weeks is getting very tiresome.

"It's highly disrespectful at this stage. In the past couple of weeks there's been zero outbreaks reported in the venues or the theatres that are affected by these restrictions."
