Relieving

Members are advised that the Local has been in discussion with management on our belief that members can not be made to relieve inter-district. Management has disputed this.

As such the Local has adopted the preferred approach of dealing with disputes whereby the status quo remains in place until the dispute is resolved.

Therefore the recommendation to members in NTM 05/02 is on hold.

The Local will be pursuing this with the National Union.

Training Course Attendance

Members are advised that there have been many changes with this agreement. The National Union will promulgate the final agreement. The agreement can be summarised by the following:

1. 5 day courses & longer
- Black watch 2 clear days off before and after the course                                                

2. 3 & 4 day courses
- Placed on black watch for the duration of the course with 2 clear days off before and after the course

3. Note, Clear days run midnight to midnight

4. 1 & 2 day courses
- Work usual roster
- OT paid if course is on any non work day If applicable, night shift off immediately before, during or after the course completion.
