LTB 514/20 – Post Office: Non-Service Day Saturday 26th December 2020

POST OFFICE: NON-SERVICE DAY SATURDAY 26TH DECEMBER 2020
I am pleased to report that following exchanges of correspondence with Nick Read, Group CEO, it has been agreed that Saturday 26th December is once again designated a “Non-Service day” for Crown Offices. This means those members who would have been scheduled to work will have the day off and will not have to make up the hours.
After the extremely difficult last six months this will no doubt come as a relief for our members in Crowns Offices who, like so many of our members, are designated as Key Workers and have kept serving the public throughout the pandemic. The long weekend break is totally deserved, especially as the lead up to Christmas is expected to be exceptionally busy with greater than normal Mails volumes. I am pleased to see that the Post Office recognises our members working in Crown Offices warrant the time off to be with their families.
I would be grateful if Branches and Representatives can ensure this information is shared with our members working in Crowns Offices.
