Secretary's Weekly Update - 14th June 2021
Hope you had a good weekend.
A few notes to share with EIS colleagues:
- Covid-19– Weekly H&S walks should take place in all establishments and that members should raise any concerns with reps asap. We continue to work locally and nationally to ensure full mitigations are in place and members are reminded that the national guidance from SG hasn’t changed around ventilation, cleaning, staggered starts, breaks, masks etc. There should be no move to withdraw any of the mitigations in place. Please let me know immediately if you have any queries. At moment the same rules, that have been in place since return following Spring Break, apply and staff are encouraged to raise any concerns they may have with SMT in first instance, via school reps. We can ask for H&S to visit schools to see if anything further could be in place. Staff can access vaccinations via the drop-in centres across LAs – details here: https://www.nhsggc.org.uk/your-health/health-issues/covid-19-coronavirus/for-patients-the-public/covid-vaccinations/drop-in-vaccinations/.
- WTA – you should now be involved in negotiating your WTA and calendar for next session. Any questions on this please don’t hesitate to ask.
- Updating Information – it is a good idea before you finish for the summer to login to MyPortal, GTCS and EIS and make sure all your information is up to date. If you’re moving school, changing name, changing address it is vital this information is updated on all systems to avoid any problems in the future. We can help in updating your EIS information if needed but it is possible to update online.
- Branch Reps – please let me know of any changes to branch reps for next session. Also, if you’d like to set up a branch meeting with a speaker for the return in August give us a shout.
Have a good week.
