When required to do duty on a public holiday members are entitled to:

  • Where less than 8 days notice is received – payment of double time plus another day off in lieu, to be treated as a public holiday
  • In any other case – payment at double time.
  • If the period of duty carried out on the public holiday is less than 4 hours, the appropriate allowance will be paid for a minimum of 4 hours.

Subject to any reasonable limit imposed by the Chief Officer, travelling time to and from duty on a public holiday may also count as duty. It will not count from the point at which travelling time and period of duty exceeds 6 hours.
