Community Corrections | COVID-19 | We Need Your Feedback

26 March 2020

The Public Service Association (PSA) has been in communication with the Department for Corrections (DCS) to ensure they are up to date with COVID-19 procedures.

As your union we are closely monitoring these unprecedented events and keeping DCS accountable.

There have been many contradictory messages coming from managers over the past week or so.

The PSA are always here for our members who have questions or concerns about how this situation is being managed.

We will continue to work closely with DCS 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 will be raised directly with DCS Executive at a meeting tomorrow (26 March 2020) at 11:00am and we will continue follow up issues raised by members.

In order to resolve the issues raised, we need your feedback.

  • What changes need to be made in order for you to continue your work safely?

  • What is the local protocol for dealing with clients who are required to report in to a Community Corrections Centre?

  • Have you received any directions that you are concerned about?

  • Can you adequately practice social distancing in the workplace?

Our regional members are encouraged to provide feedback as we know the work you undertake is different to that being done in metropolitan Adelaide.

Please email your PSA Organiser directly with your feedback or concerns so we can raise them directly with management.

A further Information Update will be circulated following the meeting to update members on the outcomes of the meeting.

Please do not hesitate to contact the PSA Members’ Rights Hotline on 8205 3227 or your PSA Organiser directly with any other 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.
