Key Agenda items:

Reducing Workload + C19 Updates

For many of us the increased workload due to the pandemic is immense and we will be grateful to get to Xmas still standing. Although many of us will also be angry that despite being “Key Workers” and “Heroes on the front line” we will be getting a pay freeze for our efforts!

Now the Government has stated that those Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV) must return to work. They are no longer allowed to ‘shield’. Currently Ealing has 191 per 100,000 cases. During the first wave this was more than enough for both CEV and CV staff to shield. This decision is a potential death sentence for our CEV colleagues.

The motions with the most votes from the Districts in each section get to be debated at conference. The next conference will be a shorter virtual one, due to the pandemic.
