Clarification on payment for mandatory training courses

To clarify which members receive payment for attendance at mandatory training courses (electrical, plumbing and ladders) – if you are a casual on probation, you will NOT receive payment for attending these courses, they are part of your requirement for employment.

Permanent members and any casuals who have successfully completed their probation who are receiving the training as part of the Board’s obligation to bring all permanent member / successful probationary casuals up to date with training WILL get paid to attend these courses.

In Solidarity,

John Tompa
