Thank for you for continuing to work on the frontline and protect our community in challenging times.
Your Union is still operating as normal and supporting members – including making sure your own health and safety is protected in the workplace.
Unfortunately, we are still hearing reports that cleaners are not being provided with proper access to PPE and are being sent to clean COVID positive areas.
We have also been made aware of unvaccinated staff being sent into these areas, despite there being very clear guidelines about staff not working in high-risk areas who are not vaccinated.
All cleaners are encouraged to attend an urgent meeting via zoom meeting today at 3pm to discuss this matter. Your safety in the workplace is paramount and we will do what is required to protect you in the workplace.
