Christmas & New Year Arrangements

The RTBU was surprised by the change to the long held arrangements for the festive season by Queensland Rail, announced on Friday.

This is the first time that shift workers have been excluded from the traditional half-staff/ concessional day’s leave that we are aware off.

The RTBU is writing to Queensland Rail Management today seeking, in the first instance, an explanation for the change as we find the minor reference to it in the QR correspondence to be far from sufficient given this long held custom and practice over the Christmas and New Year period for all QR employees.

I will keep members advised of all developments that occur in respect of this matter.

Unity is Strength
