Positive Revision of PSC Handbook

Back to all Motions

2008 Police Staff Service Group Conference
16 July 2007
Carried as Amended

The Police Staff Council (PSC) handbook has been used for some years. There is now a need to review the handbook in order to ensure it is meeting our member’s needs.

For example, in recognition of widespread current practice relating to leave where reference is made to a ‘day’ or ‘days’, the handbook could make provision for these to be expressed in hours. For those not working standard hours or patterns of work, including part time and shift workers, the failure to provide for calculation of leave in hours creates the possibility of disadvantage. Likewise the handbook fails to define start and finish times of a working day.

Conference welcomes the consultation that the SGE is currently undertaking with branches on these issues.

This Conference therefore instructs the Service Group Executive to undertake a review of the PSC handbook and to seek positive changes and improvements.
