ANZ direction to take annual leave: know your rights

ANZ has recently directed staff to use excess annual leave balances.

This comes at a time when people are unable to leave their homes. By drawing down on excess leave rather than working, staff are shouldering the burden of propping up the Bank’s financial position. While it is allowed under the ANZ enterprise agreement for some employees, in the current climate, it hardly seems fair.

Since ANZ’s announcement, the union has been inundated with questions and concerns. We’re holding an online information session to answer all your questions, and to discuss a way forward:

If you have a question that you know you’d like to ask but would prefer not to ask in the session, you can add it to your RSVP form and we’ll be sure to cover it.

Strength in numbers is essential to ensuring a fair process for all ANZ workers during the current climate; share this notice with your team mates, invite them to join the FSU and invite them to the meeting.

In Unity,
