Just to make you aware that nothing has changed in terms of bank holiday working and that it has always been a normal working day as part of your normal working week except for the double time and day in lieu gained from working that shift. Some concerns have been raised by team members as they felt they automatically got it off and had to request to work it but this is not true (some departments within SC2 the management of bank holidays was not being done correctly).
The company must give you 4 weeks notice if they do not want you to work that bank holiday shift (you then get that shift as a paid bank holiday) and this should be done fairly i.e. on a rota or volunteers to take the day off if they don’t need a full shift of team members.
