Severe Weather - Advice to members

02 Mar 2018

The Beast from the East and Storm Emma have created severe weather conditions and mass disruption across the UK.  The way this has been dealt with across the department has varied, some offices being closed in response to the warnings whilst others have been left open, with no action being taken until the last possible moment.  A number of members have reported that they have felt unsafe being in work due to the extreme weather conditions and the treacherous journeys they have to make to and from the office. Rather than exercise the required duty of care, the employer has refused to allow members to go home in some instances.  This should not be the case as staff safety is paramount.

PCS condemns threats of redundancies to members in Digital

26 Feb 2018

The Digital arm of the corporate centre has declared 20 staff unassigned. This is a result of Digital unilaterally deciding that some posts can only be delivered form certain corporate centre hubs. This means that staff currently undertaking these roles in another hub must transfer to the hubs where Digital say the post must be located. As most are unable to undertake a transfer to that hub due to the distance, they have now been declared unassigned.
