Eastern Avenue Jobcentre Dispute Escalation 07/08/2017

Posted by pcsdwpsheffield in Uncategorized.

After a fantastically supported series of weeklong strike action members at Eastern Avenue Jobcentre have decided to escalate their action to take two weeks strike action from the 14th August 2017.

The campaign to save Eastern Avenue is largely based on the loss of services to the public in the local area.

Local PCS Reps and Louise Haigh MP met DWP South Yorkshire District Management on the 1st of August 2017 and continued to raise member’s concerns and core demands.  The poor consultation was also discussed. PCS have been issued with a local Equality Analysis and have formally challenged both its findings and conclusion, further we have demanded to meet with ‘decision maker’ to conduct a review of the decision for closure.

We continue to take forward the issues of potential redundancies with G4S (Security Guards) and Engie (Cleaners) members.

Our campaigns needs your support.

Please join on the picket line week commencing 14th and 21st of August!
