Thank you to Essex County Fire & Rescue Service who signed the charter on 10th September 2018 providing protection for their 1,200 employees.
Chief Fire Officer, Jo Turton, said:
“So many of our staff show unrelenting commitment to our Service, regardless of their own circumstances. The Dying to Work Charter is about our Service showing that commitment back to them. It is about us being there if ever the incredibly difficult event of being diagnosed with a terminal illness or disease becomes a reality. Today, alongside the Trade Union Congress, we signed this charter to make sure that peace of mind of their job security is never at risk.”
