    I read lately that public service privilege days are to be phased out under Croke Park,does it follow that the DF hols will also get the chop?

      i hope not, it's bad enough taking pay cuts without taking days off you too.

        They're planning on taking them out of annual leave instead.

              Sorry to hear about that HA.

              The leave of the DF and ordianry joe soaps can never be compared- the DF dont work mon- fri 9-5.

              In Units such as the Vikings it was hard to get time to avail of the full compliment anyway,

              now this penny pinching PR exercise.
              Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
              Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
              The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
              The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
              The best lack all conviction, while the worst
              Are full of passionate intensity.

                  Indeed, we had lads go into the Coy office and ask what was the story with the christmas shopping day that apparently everyone in the PS is entitled to... They got laughed out of the office.

                  Of course, regardless of what parts of the PS actually get the so called shopping days, the whole PS gets it in the neck because of it.

                  Smashing stuff altogether.

                      all i can say is if you want these days leave Danno while they are still there is:

                      "book 'em Danno"

                        though to be fair- its a good one.

                            There are 2 privilege days in the PS. There are leave days that must be taken on certain dates, in the past this was for practical reasons. You were frced to take a days leave after easter and christmas. The new Agreement makes these days mobile. However those who already have more than 30 days leave per year will lose them.
                            That said, everyone else gets to use 2 more days whenever they need to.

                            I don't think the DF were affected by this arrangement.


                            Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

                              mobile days are the way forward.

                              all 38 of our days are mobile.

                                What is a "mobile" day and how does it differ from normal leave?
