Further to yesterday’s Newsletter that reported in detail on the Fire Service’s actions in this dispute, the Union has now been advised that the Court of Appeal has set 14 March 2005 to hear the Fire Service’s appeal.

As detailed in yesterday’s Newsletter, the Employment Court had tentatively set 28 February – 2 March 2005 to hear the substantive issue. The dates are now overtaken by the date set by the Appeal Court.

The Union repeats to members its serious concerns at the continuing delaying tactics of the Fire Service.

Members might like to directly ask Mike Hall why he is taking every step to prevent the Courts actually determining the actual issue – whether the Fire Service is providing an alternative Day in Lieu for Public Holidays that are worked.
