Guidance for shift workers 14 to 16 October
This guidance is specifically for members who are rostered to work shifts during the strike action called by PCS for Wednesday 15th October. Members are asked to adhere to this guidance which supersedes any previous advice issued.
Shift workers are only being asked to take strike action for one shift.
Members will be called on to take strike action in the following priority order:
- a) Members who are due to work a shift that starts and finishes on the 15 October should not report for work for that shift;
- b) Members who are not working a shift entirely within 15 October and who are starting a shift on 15 October that crosses over into 16 October will be called upon not to report for work on the 15 October and not to work any part of that shift that crosses over into 16 October;
- c) Members who are not covered by ‘a’ or ‘b’ above and are due to work a shift that crosses over from 14 October to 15 October will be called on not to report for work at the start of that shift on 14 October and not to work any part of that shift that crosses over into 15 October.
If you require any further clarification on the guidance in this briefing please initially contact your branch secretary for advice.
