Thank you to Sefton Council who signed the charter on 18th November 2021 providing protection for their 3,300 employees.
Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member – Regulatory, Compliance and Corporate Services, Cllr. Paulette Lappin, said:
“It’s really important that employees who are diagnosed with a terminal illness know they will be supported by the Council and not face any additional stress or worries. We already work really closely with GMB, Unison, Unite & the TUC, and by signing the Dying to Work Charter we are demonstrating our commitment to our hard-working, dedicated employees."
Chief Personnel Officer at Sefton Council, Mark Dale said:
"The council’s most valued asset is its staff and we are committed to supporting our colleagues and their families in whatever way we can. Worrying about your job should be the least of your concerns and so we are proud to sign the Dying to Work charter, giving those who are faced with a terminal illness the dignity and respect they deserve.
“We hope that other employers will follow our lead in supporting the TUC’s campaign.”
