Child Protection | COVID-19 Update

25 March 2020

The Public Service Association (PSA) has been in communication with the Department for Child Protection (DCP) on a daily basis ensuring they are up to date with COVID-19 procedures.
 
As your union we are closely monitoring these unprecedented events and keeping DCP accountable.
 
There have been many contradictory messages coming from managers over the past week or so. We encourage all members to access the DCP Intranet for up to date information. The PSA is receiving this information as it is posted so we are able to share with our members correct, timely and factual information.
 
The PSA is always here for our members who have questions or concerns about how this situation is being managed.
 
We will continue to work closely with DCP to protect our members working in this essential public service to minimise any negative outcomes for our members.
 
The PSA has received many questions from members in the last two weeks. These concerns have been raised directly with DCP Executive and we will continue follow up issues raised by members.
 
Please do not hesitate to contact the PSA Members’ Rights Hotline on 8205 3227 or your PSA Organiser directly with any concerns or industrial issues.
 
Remember, it is a very difficult time for you all and now, more than ever, working together and looking after your workmates is the best place to start. Be kind to each other and check on how people are travelling while taking the time to look after your own wellbeing.
