Our Union has been made aware that NAB are directing all staff with Long Service Leave (LSL) to use between 10% and 20% of their balance (as at October 2021) before the end of September 2022.
There are only very limited circumstances that allow NAB to direct when we must take our LSL. You can find a detailed fact sheet on your rights when it comes to Long Service Leave here.
This blanket direction will impact many employees who do not meet those requirements and our Union has written to the bank seeking a removal of this direction and a correction to the process to ensure no one is disadvantaged.
If you have been directed to take Long Service Leave (or Annual Leave), we want to hear from you. Let us know about your circumstances and one of our team will be in touch with how we can assist. All contact with FSU is strictly confidential.
Good Agreements have strong safeguards.
Negotiations for a new Enterprise Agreement (EA) will start soon and when complete, the new EA will define our workplace conditions for the next few years. We want to ensure we retain this exact type of protection for all of us working at NAB. For more information, how to get involved and to endorse the FSU Members’ log of claims click here.
