Public holiday relief for Special Roster stations

February 16, 2006

Following negotiations with the Department, permanent members working the Special Roster (Monday to Friday dayshift) at Coffs Harbour, Armidale, Moree, Toronto, Goulburn and Narellan will trial an arrangement whereby they will no longer be required to attend their station on Good Friday, Christmas day or New Year’s day provided sufficient retained members remain available to respond. Without this trial, these members would have been required to work every single public holiday this year, save for Easter Saturday. The trial will be reviewed mid-2007.
