Supreme Court update – Justice Flexible Working Hours Agreement

Supreme Court update – Justice Flexible Working Hours Agreement – July 2018 (PDF version)

Members have contacted the PSA advising they have received communications from senior managers that the core hours under the Justice Flexible Working Hours Agreement (Justice Flex Agreement) will be 9.30am to 3.30pm. Members understood the core hours would be 10.00am to 3.00pm.

The PSA raised the changed core hours with the Department of Justice, Flex Project Team on Monday 9 July 2018. They advised they want a standardised core time of 9.30am to 3.30pm across Courts and Tribunal Services. They are pursuing that under paragraph 5.1.2 of the Justice Flex Agreement. That provides core time can be set by the Department as five to six consecutive hours within the bandwidth subject to operational or service delivery requirements.

The PSA raised members’ carer responsibility concerns to the 9.30am to 3.30pm core hours. The Justice Flex Project Team sought that the PSA obtain members’ feedback to the 9.30am to 3.30pm core hours. The PSA advised it would survey members.

The link found HERE is a survey for members to respond to three questions. The survey will only take a few minutes to fill out, and all responses will be kept strictly confidential. No individual respondent will be identified. Your survey responses will assist your PSA in negotiations with the Justice Flex Project Team.

The Survey is open to members only at the Supreme Court. We would like your response by COB Monday, 30 July 2018.
