Members are hereby instructed that effective on and from 1800 hours today, Friday 4 May:
no permanent member is to perform any stand-bys or out-duties. Members are to return to and remain at their own station, save for GSA-based members who are currently relieving out of the GSA, who should remain at their present location; and
the latitude that the Union has until now advised members to allow to management on account of “reasonableness” whereby members were encouraged to not submit claims for meal and/or refreshment allowances in instances where the meals were only 10 or 15 minutes late and/or it was obvious that management had tried its best to provide the meals beforehand is withdrawn, and members are therefore to strictly observe the Award by submitting a claim on each and every occasion that a meal and/or refreshment (as the case may be) is not provided within the required time frame.
This instruction is to remain in place until further notice from the State Secretary
