Did You Know? New campaign launches today (21 Nov)

Following National Council, Did You Know? is launching on Wednesday 21 November and will focus on a key theme every month, based on what our members want to know.  This forms part of your National Chair’s commitment to supporting members, helping to raise awareness of the entitlements that officers can claim.

If you haven’t already, please click the below to watch a short video on why this is so important, from John Apter, National PFEW Chair.  The video will go live on YouTube on 21 November and we would encourage you to promote this and use it on your own channels.

What subjects will be covered?

The theme for the first subject which will run until the end of the year is annual leave and will highlight four key questions:

  • How much annual leave am I entitled to?
  • If I have to work on a day of annual leave, what compensation am I entitled to?
  • If I receive compensation for working on a day of annual leave, what is ‘a day of annual leave’ and what is ‘a day’s pay’?
  • How much annual leave can I carry over at the end of the year?

The answers to the questions can be found in the updated Quick Reference Guide (QRG) and content will signpost to this, as well as suggesting members talk to their local Federations if they have queries. There is a Welsh and English version of this online here.

Topics that will be covered in the coming months include rest days, performance and pension buy-back and you will be notified in advance of each one of the content before they get promoted.
