GMB@TC – Cleaning staff

Dear member,
Tayside Contracts have advised that there will be a requirement for additional cleaning from Monday to ensure schools are ready for a 15th June return which will be from a skeleton group.
If you are called and asked to report for work – make sure there is:
An updated Covid-19 Risk Assessment that you can see before you attend work.
That appropriate PPE which includes hand sanitiser, gloves, aprons and masks (and other risk assessed necessary PPE) is available and that is confirmed before you return to work.
That all required cleaning materials are available before you return to work.
That you can maintain a 2 metre distance from other workers and children.
No cleaning staff member will be working at more than one building in any given week.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact your reps or GMB – and if you are being asked to do something that is unsafe, remember you can advise that under the Health and Safety Act 1974 you wish safe working practices to be put in place before you return to work.
GMB will never compromise on your safety.
