Your Branch has listed in the Victorian Magistrates court for conciliation the issue of Public Holiday Pro Rata pay for Part Time employees.
Many Part Time staff work additional hours and are paid Pro Rata for Recreation Leave but Australia Post are refusing to pay the same for all Public Holidays.
Our claim is for Post to pay Pro Rata for all Public Holidays and to back date it for all Part Time staff for a period of 6 years which is the maximum allowed under the law.
If we are successful in obtaining a Judgement in the courts Australia Post may be subject to penalties that would be paid to your branch.
We will keep members informed of the case and the first hearing is scheduled for Wednesday 18th of this month.
