PCS union in its Update on UC staffing campaign today says -

Existing UC decision makers in Jobcentres currently carry out some Fail to Attend decisions.

- and goes on to say -

DWP have notified us of a trial which will involve these decision makers making all sanctions decisions.

I wasn’t aware that there were decision makers in the jobcentre - is this the case generally? And are they making some sanction decisions?

A lot of the FTA decisions were made in JC’s when I worked there up to 2015 but we weren’t allowed to admit it.
