Quote from the policy:

If your rest day falls on a bank holiday, your manager will check if workload allows for you to have
another day off that week.
If you are unable to take another day off, you can either:
 add the day to your annual holiday entitlement; or
 take the excess hours paid as overtime. This will be paid at the Monday to Saturday overtime rate

our office forces us. there are guys with 11 weeks owed to them carried over from year ago. I asked the union about this and they said the office can do this. seems illegal to me to force us to carry our annual leave over, can they ?
