Anyway...I worked for Royal Mail for 5 and a half years and then moved location but was unable to get a transfer. A year later I got back into Royal Mail at my new location and have been here now for 12 and a half years.
When I rejoined RM I was told that I would lose seniority as I'd had a break in service, which I understand but I have now been told that my 2 separate periods working for RM should be added together making my total service around 18 years, firstly is this correct?
I looked on "Mybundle" and it says my Annual Entitlement is 183.3 hours, which with my dodgy maths would be around 4 and a half weeks, which I think is what you get up to 15 years service. Now, if I've indeed worked 18 years, should I not be entitled to some extra days every month?
To confuse matters, I purchase annual leave so that I get 6 weeks every year, so for the last 2/3 years I have been paying for some days that I'm possibly entitled to anyway (if that makes sense). Therefore, I'm also paying more each week out of my pay towards these holidays.
Hopefully this all makes sense? I've been trying to find an email address for HR so that I can put everything in writing and more important, have replies in writing but I don't seem to find one. If I'm correct about my service being 18 years and not 12, then I assume I'm owed days that I've paid for or at least money back plus my weekly pay changed as I shouldn't be purchasing as many days.
Has anyone got any help/advice about any of this before I take it further? Many thanks.

You are not entitled to some extra days every month!!! You are entitled to the annual leave for services of between 15 and 20 years which is 5 weeks! Up to 15 years service is 23 and a half days, 15 years service is 25 days and when you reach 20 years service you get the maximum of 30 days and any purchased days will be stopped
