CODE 2, VOL 35, NO 10 : 30 april 2021
LABOUR DAY 2021
Monday 3 May 2021 is Labour Day and therefore a gazetted public holiday across Queensland.
PUBLIC HOLIDAY ENTITLEMENTS:
Public holiday entitlements for Firefighter, Station Officer and Fire Communication Officer members are contained in the award at clauses 23.1 (Fire and Rescue Stream), 23.2 (Fire Communications Stream) and 23.4 (Labour Day provisions for both Streams).
Award clause 23.4 provides for specific entitlements that apply only to Labour Day for all employees whether rostered to work or not.
You can find the award here.
LABOUR DAY EVENTS:
As previously advised, there is no formal UFUQ participation in the Brisbane Labour Day march or post-march function at the RNA exhibition grounds. We look forward to seeing you all there next year.
However, members in Brisbane and in all regions can of course make their own decisions about participation in any Labour Day marches or events.
