Call for industrial action
As the person authorised to make the call for industrial action I now confirm that continuous industrial action will commence at 09:00 hours on 25th November 2011.
The industrial action will be as follows:
â€¢ A ban on the working of Pre-arranged overtime, which is non contractual;
â€¢ A ban on non-contractual overtime i.e. any additional non contractual hours above core hours which are remunerated with either: time of in lieu, extra duty leave, cash payment or any other financial or incentive arrangement;
This is the action which has been determined upon. We hope the matter will be resolved shortly. If not, any further forms of action to be called in respect of this ongoing industrial action will be notified once determined. Members are now instructed to take continuous industrial action as specified above from and not earlier than the date and time specified above and any further action to be so notified.
