So the suggestion that no Public Holiday will be paid in future is wrong?

Correct. We initially feared that, as Winsor had been talking of the ability of the force to cancel Public Holidays, where resilience did not exist and officers were required to work, the force may simply cancel the Public Holiday and require officers to work at flat rate.

However, the Determination makes no reference to the cancellation of Public Holidays and they cannot, therefore, be cancelled. As a result, if you are required to work on a Public Holiday (either statutory or substituted) you will get paid double time.
