Wrongful Payment of Accrued Public Holidays

Aug 28, 2015Bulletins

Bulletin 41 –

To: RTBU Sydney Trains Members,

It has been brought to the RTBU’s attention that members that applied and were approved to clear accrued public holidays on specific dates or as part of 2016 leave have been paid out.

The RTBU reached an agreement with Sydney Trains in relation to Sydney Trains proposal to ‘pay out’ excessive accrued public holidays. This agreement included four options. These options were;

  1. Cash out of public holidays
  2. Progressive cash out payments
  3. Clear leave on specific dates
  4. Clear leave as part of 2016 leave

The RTBU have represented this issue via Unions NSW and as a result Sydney Trains have agreed to recredit the accrued public holidays if the proper process has been followed initially by members. The RTBU is advising members to contact their local manager IMMEDIATELY if they have been impacted by wrongful payment of Accrued Public Holidays.If you have any questions or comments please contact your local delegate or the RTBU office.
