Throughout the current coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic the branch has been working to safeguard your health and wellbeing. We’ve met and corresponded with senior management in MHCLG. We’ve also been fielding queries from a significant number of members who are quite rightly concerned about potential exposure to COVID-19 within the workplace and the expectations of their business area during the pandemic.
Things you can do as a member of PCS:
- If you haven’t already done so, let PCS have your personal/non-work email address and your mobile phone number. We’ll only use it to keep you informed about PCS matters. You can update your details securely online by registering for PCS Digital or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, ask your local PCS rep to enter your details securely on the PCS Organising App.
- Look out for further comms from PCS, attend local members meetings via telekit, talk with your local PCS rep
- Make your views known! Consider being visible online, responds to intranet articles on this. They are widely read, so messages from the membership count. Be vocal.
- Get active – we always need more reps and communicating with members is even more important at the moment.
With a wide range of personal casework, the branch has developed a dedicated network of PCS Local Advocates, to help give PCS a strong and visible presence across the various MHCLG offices. The branch is grateful to all the PCS advocates and to members who met with local representatives to offer their broader support.
With the continuation of anti-trade union legislation and the on-going attacks on our hard fought terms and conditions, there has never been a more important time to be a member of the union.
We would also encourage all non-members to join PCS today. The best way to protect your pay and terms and conditions is to join us.
If you want more information on what the branch is doing, information on our annual group conference, to meet a local representative, or to find out how to become more active, please email PCSMHCLGMailbox@communities.gov.uk
