PCS negotiates checklist for suspected or confirmed cases

07 May 2020

PCS H&S negotiators were keen to work with DWP management to get guidance out to staff on what should be done when a member of staff has suspected symptoms of Covid-19 and when it is confirmed. It was also clear that there was a lack of understanding about the thorough clean that needs to take place as soon as a member of staff notifies their line manager that they have symptoms.

Stay safe during the Covid-19 pandemic

The PCS DWP GEC is committed to do all that we can to fight to ensure the safety of our members.  We are also fully committed to the DWP having the full staffing levels and resources to allow our members to be able to properly deliver and pay benefits to those who need them. Our ultimate demand is to have as many people as possible working from home as this is the safest place for our members to work from. It is frustrating how long this is taking with the DWP only being able to send out between 500 and 600 laptops or mini PCs a day
