Tuesday 28 May 2019
Following the joint conciliation meeting between the States of Guernsey and Unite the Union, the States is making preparations to minimise any potential disruption caused by possible industrial action tomorrow (May 29).
We have been reassured that the operation of the airport and essential services at the hospital will not be affected.
Rubbish and recycling collections tonight should not be affected. Islanders who would normally leave their bags for collections tonight (May 28) should still do so.
Beyond that, it is unclear to what extent industrial action may affect services, including non-essential services at the hospital. Our best, current advice is Islanders should attend appointments as normal.
We hope to have a better understanding of the overall impact of the possible industrial action early tomorrow morning, following the Unite members' meeting and will issue further advice at that stage.
