Carer’s Leave dispute
Following a long running dispute between the Union and STA about when members can use a “Statutory Declaration” for Carer’s Leave,
the following arrangements were put in place during Industrial Relations Commission Proceedings:
“Statutory Declarations can be used for 5 days of Carer’s Leave per year, unless you are on the Absence Management Program”.
NSW IRC Commissioner Tabba will monitor these arrangements, with a “Report Back” scheduled for around three months time. The Union
is confident of a positive final outcome.
