It has been brought to our attention that some members working in Environment and Infrastructure Services may have been contact by text and/or telephone today advising them to return to work tomorrow, as the 12 weeks for those with underlying health issues ends on 18th June 2020.

It is expected that the Scottish Government and Public Health Scotland will be issuing further advice/guidance (expected tomorrow) on this matter, however nothing has changed and you should not return to your workplace until the new information is announced and the position changes.

If you have an underlying health issue and fall into the above category, please ensure you make yourself available for working from home where this can be accommodated.

I will issue further information on receipt of any further advice/guidance and after consultation with the employer.

Please stay safe, fit and healthy. – Remember the Scottish Governments advice is still to STAY AT HOME wherever possible.

Mark Ferguson
Branch Secretary
