PSI considers remote work
by Róisín McKane
Fórsa national secretary Peter Nolan has told global representatives of local government workers that the union will be seeking a balanced set of conditions for workers who wish to continue to work remotely, either full time or as part of a hybrid arrangement.
Peter, who serves as the vice president of the local and regional government standing committee of the European Confederation of Public Service Unions (EPSU), made the address at a global meeting of Public Service International (PSI) representatives of local government workers earlier this week.
The assembly gathered to assess the implications and effects of Covid-19 on the sector, with union representatives from Africa, the Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe were in attendance.
The meeting identified the priority issues for local government workers, and considered the categories of workers who were most exposed, and their concerns.
