Passenger Transport COVID Update 1.
Thursday 24 September 2020.
Barnet UNISON has been contacted by coach escorts and drivers about COVID safety concerns since the service began at the beginning of September.
The issues are
- Overcrowded minibuses which have 10 or more pupils on a bus.
- Overcrowded minicabs
- COVID Cleansing of private contract vehicles
Barnet UNISON made the point that Government Guidance was a minimum standard and that we want a higher standard of protection for our members especially in light of the fact that a significant number of this workforce had been self-isolating.
Barnet Council have agreed to look at the numbers on the vehicles and the cleansing regime for the private contractor vehicles.
We want to assure all of our members working in Passenger Transport that your safety and welfare are central to what we do.
If you have any concerns please contact the branch on 0208 359 2088 or email email@example.com
