Where’d those 10 hours go?
Aurizon Coal’s move to strip workers of 10 hours of annual leave has forced the RTBU to lodge a dispute over the issue.
The union met with management in mid October in an attempt to discuss alternative plans, however the company refused to discuss the issue in good faith which left the RTBU with no choice but to begin the process of disputing the issue.
You can see some examples of the ideas put forward by the union here.
The Fair Work Commission was due to hear the dispute case on Thursday 13 November, however the company forced the case to be pushed back to Wednesday 19 November.
