DSPL urgent leave questions need answers!

We’ve written to all our work sites several times over the last month, DSPL included, to ask about leave arrangements in the event of a COVID-19 outbreak or if staff need to be isolated or quarantined.

Unfortunately DSPL chose to never provide that information - and look where we are now - quarantined and being told to use sick, unpaid or annual leave.

Today we wrote to management seeking urgent answers to the following questions

  • Why hasn’t special leave been granted?
  • What happens if members have insufficient sick or annual leave balances?
  • Have members been offered the option of accessing long service leave?
  • Can members take annual or sick leave at half pay?

We’ll update you as soon as we get a response.

In the meantime stay safe!
