We have secured an emergency meeting with the Cabinet Office on 12 March where we will be pressing the need for pay protections for all staff, including in privatised areas, to take the necessary precautions if they are infected, have travelled to one of the affected areas, been affected by school or other office closures or have flu like symptoms, with no detriment. We will also be calling for full union involvement in safety planning and response teams.
After extensive consultation with the national trade union committee (NTUC) representing all civil service trade unions, Cabinet Office Civil Service Employee Policy (CSEP) has now issued new procedures and guidance on “Supporting attendance” - civil service attendance management procedures.
Over the weekend 28-29 March 2020, PCS will be holding its first ever national health, safety and welfare seminar. Applications to attend this event are now open. We are especially keen to receive applications from newly elected health and safety reps and green/environmental reps.
