QUU Steals Christmas

Local Authorities November 20, 2020

Public Holidays CANCELLED by QUU Management

Right before Christmas, the season of giving, Queensland Urban Utilities (QUU) Management steal your Christmas Holiday!

The Services Union knows how important the Christmas break is to our members and that’s why we won’t let QUU get away with being the Grinch this year.

Recently, QUU management issued a directive that requires employees whose RDO falls on the same day as a Public Holiday to forfeit their RDO in lieu of payment on that day.

Our Union does not agree with QUU’s new interpretation of the RDO/Public Holiday provisions contained within your Enterprise Agreement and the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth).

Our Union is currently in the process of escalating this issue to the Fair Work Commission as a matter of urgency.  We will provide you with updates as this matter progresses.

Public Holidays are an entitlement that you should not have to pay for with your RDO balance and we will be by your side as we fight to ensure you don’t lose them.

Strong membership is the key to winning industrial campaigns. If you or someone you know will be impacted by this ask them to join our Union today.
