Question Term Time working and Holiday Entitlement

2 months 4 days ago #41533 by Cookerty
On the 8th of August this year UNISON won a landmark case about the holiday entitlement of a term time music teacher. It was ruled that this worker was entitled to the full 28 days and that it shouldn't be pro-rata as is the current way we're all given our allowance. Now I don't know if it's gone to appeal but I wouldn't be surprised.

I've enquired with my local UNISON branch as to what the outcome of this will be for normal term time employees and I'll keep you all informed.

Have any others heard anything about this?

Could you Cookerty at some point write a news article regarding this that we can put up on the front page with links to any other information from Unison?

... and would you mind if I copied this onto the Scitech technician mailbase?

This needs to be spread around.

I wonder if I can get anything backdated?

I hope it will be spread far and wide!

I've contacted my local UNISON branch office again ( Stockton-On-Tees)and they're going to get back to me after they consult with the regional office. I don't know if an appeal against this decision is ongoing though.

It reads to me that all term time employees could be due ££. I also wondered to myself when that might be paid from?

My Academy Trust didn't know anything about this judgement until I kindly informed the Head and Finance dept. I then had a discussion with the personnel officer who kept quoting the Green Book to me until I asked when that was last updated which was March 2019. August 2019 was the date of the judgement so I said that the Green Book was now out of date and due a revision.

Still nothing back from UNISON

The Green Book will not be changed until the decision is formally ratified after any appeal has been heard. At the moment it may mean that there will be some back pay for teachers ... or not ...

I'm still waiting for a response from UNISON.....

I've left a message on the answerphone of my local branch.
