Louise White has made an annoumcent about the list of essential workers in the DVLA. We asked that they devise this list urgently, to enable the majority of staff to stay at home, keep safe, and help the NHS to contain the virus by avoiding travel and large groups of people.
PCS negotiators have with met the Cabinet Office for ongoing talks on the coronavirus outbreak.
The majority of the discussion was about civil service-wide guidance that the Cabinet Office is updating. We have been pressing for this to be more directive on departments so that there are common standards across the civil service. In particular in the most recent meeting we secured common guidance on the impact of staff of school closures, which will be issued shortly.
