The Union has been advised that the Court of Appeal will hear the Fire Service’s Leave to Appeal application on 14 November 2005.
The Union’s lawyers have responded to the Fire Service’s application and the Union is strongly opposing the application.
The Union is also advised that on 3 October 2005, the Employment Court granted the Fire Service’s application for a Stay of its decision on the Days in Lieu. This Stay will remain in force at least until the Court of Appeal hearing. The Stay has the effect of freezing any applications to use Days in Lieu.
