Since our previous article, I have continued to engage with the chief officer team around the decision to cancel rest days at short notice in order to meet increased demand in respect of policing the Caribbean Carnival 2018.
It is clear that the uplift in officers required has become unavoidable. However, the Force has accepted our position on this and, in consultation with ACC Jason Masters, all officers who have had a short notice cancellation of their rest day will receive the normal enhanced remuneration of pay (RD-15) AND will be entitled to a rest day in lieu back to reflect the situation.
This is what the Federation is here to do on behalf of you as its members and we wish everyone on duty a safe weekend.
