Work for DWP? Complete our workplace safety survey

If you are a PCS member working for the Department for Work and Pensions, we would like to hear your views on returning to the office, office safety, travelling to the office and pay.

So that everybody has the chance to complete the survey, we have extended the deadline to 15 October.

Our DWP group executive committee will review the survey results and decide on next steps when it meets next month.

Members’ meetings

PCS are encouraging members to attend meetings organised by branches to discuss the current safety position in DWP. Several meetings have already taken place with GEC speakers in attendance providing an update. Just as important, we want to hear from members, so we can take away the issues to be raised in our discussions with the employer.

Check with your branch when your meeting will take place, and please attend to let us know your views.

Important you have your say

We know from previous feedback that members throughout DWP have serious concerns about the safety of their workplaces and returning to them. They are also under pressure from DWP and have other worries we all share about pay and the likely impact the rise in National Insurance contributions and inflation will have on take-home pay and our standard of living.

The members survey and branch meetings are important tools for members to tell us about the impact these issues have on them, as well as informing PCS what they’re prepared to do about these issues.

We value members’ input and need your engagement if we are to push DWP back and win important concessions for you and your colleagues.
