Some staff should be receiving additional overtime payments this month for COVID related absences.
UNISON raised this issue with People & Culture on the 6 May 2020 in relation to staff who have had to be off work due to COVID. We have been raising it regularly at meetings and other forums since then and we are pleased the service have now agreed to make these payments.
This is a unique payment due for COVID whilst absent from work. This amount will be subject to the normal and statutory deductions.
If you have any questions regarding this then please speak to your local UNISON rep.
