Are you working on an upcoming public holiday?

With Grand Final and Melbourne Cup Days fast approaching, we normally get a lot of queries during this time period.

Some common questions are: Can NAB roster me to work on a public holiday? Can I refuse? Are state and federal holidays applied differently?

It’s important that you know your rights when it comes to working on public holidays. Under our Enterprise Agreement 2016, negotiated between union members and management, NAB has obligations.

Enterprise Agreement 2016

Refer to Clause 41 Public Holidays (pp. 44-46) and Clause 64 Dispute Resolution Procedure (p. 72). If Clause 41 isn’t being applied fairly, then you have the right to dispute.
