Xmas Pressure

13 Aug 2019, 21:11

Sorry to introduce this topic so early on in the year!

Christmas Pressure. Its my 50th Birthday on December the 2nd 2020. Leave forms are going around for 20/21 picks but it states for our unit Christmas pressure will be week commencing 29/11/20

to 24/11/20 so basically 4 weeks, no leave can be booked. I had hoped that pressure would be 3 weeks only ( It normally is) and called W/C 7/12/20 to the 24/12/20.

Can they call Four Weeks pressure and Block leave for that long? This is despite the fact that most years a large number of our Unit dont get to book all their leave and have to carry it over any way.

I really dont want to work my 5Oth , I ve got stuff planned.

Bloody Hell. I really did think they were only allowed to call 3 weeks on it. Anyone know if there are any set agreements.

I'm sure if you have plans then swap some days off with a work mate, get them to change your day off or work an extra day to have one off in lieu. I'm sure you could sort it

As the public are ordering their presents online earlier in November the Xmas pressure is being extended further into November. I think we already had it from the last week in November to Xmas Eve inclusive so that's over four weeks. I think this year we are adding the third week in November with less AL slots available.
