I'm with UNISON, is that the same as the PCS or whatever it is :?: Have you raised any of the issues with them, if so what was their reply if any :?:

I believe they are more or less the same.
Haven't spoken to our union rep simply because i along with most PC's and PCSO's cant stand her and she's absolutely useless anyway.
A couple of my colleagues are pushing me to be a union rep but i'm not to sure about it.

Two of my colleagues are reps for Unison, they go to lots of different meetings and mention issues that we all have. The most that's happened so far is that they made sure a Risk Assesment was done on our role as PCSO's as one had never had one done before. We were then issued made to measure Body Armour, so that was a great step forward. Not a lot else has happened but I haven't spoken to them for some time. Will keep you posted :)

Correct mate :D

I asked UNISON if they could do something about PCSOS single crewing after 2200. Three months on still no reply.


USELESS :(

CIDB,

Do you have a Unison Rep in your Divison, if so get on their case. It's an issue you have and many others I should imagine, so they'll have to listen not just ignore you. That's not a very reassuring image they are protraying at all :x

What were the results of the recent PCSO National Survey? Would it not be possible to use some of that information, draft a standard letter and we all send it to our respective Inspectors? At least we could then share their answers and see just how much confusion there is out there.
