A big breakthrough for ACL workers who were being forced to take leave.
On Friday ACL agreed to the following:
“Following the dispute in the Fair Work Commission, it has been agreed between the HSU and ACL that the following will apply to employees who applied for leave after 14 November 2023. Employees who were directed to take leave or partial leave, during the shutdown, and applied for leave but now wish to continue working, please let your supervisor know, and arrangements will be made to ensure your contracted hours will be met. However, if you would like to take leave without pay during this period, please make an application”.
