Complete our survey: Non-essential work in local authorities

Unite is receiving numerous calls from members across local authorities who believe they have been asked to carry out non-essential work, which would flout the Government’s advice.

Carrying out non-essential work puts lives at risk—not just your own but members of your family and your co-workers.

Some employers are stating that non-essential work has now become essential, for example, potholes that were reported months ago now need to be filled. Unite asserts that if it wasn’t essential in March, then it isn’t essential in April.

We need to hear from you
