Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions – Flexible Working Hours Agreement – 3 June 2015
The PSA has agreed to a new Flexible Working Hours Agreement (FWHA) at the Office of The Director Public Prosecutions (ODPP).
The FWHA provides:
• a settlement period of 6 weeks;
• a maximum carry-forward of 50 hours;
• a maximum of 5 days taken in a settlement period (maximum of 30 in a flex year);
• flex time credit to be reduced in line with the new FWHA by 29 February 2016.
This agreement was made after extensive consultation with PSA members and delegates, who all contributed to the union’s bargaining position and acceptance of a final agreement.
The PSA and ODPP had put forward a good case for an 8 week settlement period but were not able to further argue the case for approval by Wages Policy Taskforce (NSW Treasury). The PSA did request that the date for members’ excess flexitime credits to be reduced should be extended to 29 February 2016.
The PSA maintains that no member should be losing accumulated flex time and should contact the PSA or their local delegate if they are not able to take accumulated flex time.
Further, the PSA reminds members that they should apply for overtime particularly in circumstances where they know there is a long trial or circuit pending.
