Site Closures 27/01/2017

Posted by pcsdwpsheffield in Uncategorized.

Yesterday it was announced that management plan to close Eastern Avenue Jobcentre. Members were understandably upset and angry with the announcement. We consulted with members and members informed reps that they wish to campaign to keep Eastern Avenue open. Today we met as TU reps and discussed launching a campaign.

We hope all members in the branch will understand why members wish to campaign to keep their workplace open and to defend this vital public service for benefit claimants. The branch will be taking forward a number of actions in the coming weeks. Some the activities we may not be able to email about on departmental computer systems so please keep checking the branch website or home email for updates.

The proposed closure of Rockingham House was also announced yesterday and while the members on the site are in separate PCS Branch there is likely to be an impact on Hartshead. Your branch has committed to support the PCS DWP Sheffield HQ Branch in their work regarding the Rockingham House closure.
