Liverpool City Council must maintain Christmas leave for employees

Liverpool City Council must maintain Christmas leave for employees

In recent years, Liverpool City Council has closed early on Christmas Eve or the last working day prior to Christmas. Staff were granted leave to cover this period. In 2020 Council has again decided to close early however the decision has been made that staff must use their own leave entitlements to cover this time. Council has advised the USU that this is due to COVID-19.

Why is this important?

It is important that Liverpool City Council employees sign this petition to ensure their working rights are upheld and maintained.

Employees need to advise the CEO Dr Eddie Jackson, that it is unfair to close council early and require staff to use their own leave. Further by cancelling staff Christmas celebrations Council has already saved money and therefore requiring staff to use up to 3 hours of annual leave is unfair and not in the spirit of the season.
