Amey Holiday pay and Homeworking

23 November 2018

Thanks to TSSA members who fought for your legal rights, all staff covered by collective bargaining who receive payment for working overtime are due to receive two yearsÂ’ backpay for overtime they would have earned if they werenÂ’t on holiday. Your November payslip should give details.

At the conclusion of pay talks in July, TSSA negotiated a lump sum equal to the overtime payments members would have received for the 20 days holiday covered by the European Working Time Directive if they hadn’t been on leave. Clearly, we wouldn’t have achieved this deal if TSSA members hadn’t brought legal claims that would have proved that non-payment was unlawful if Amey hadn’t settled the issue through collective negotiation. We agreed to give Amey 16 weeks to calculate the value of individual payments, some worth thousands of pounds.

TSSA understands that all eligible staff should have received a letter setting out the value of their backpay to be received in the next pay run. We have already resolved several cases in which members had not received a letter because management claimed that members were not covered by collective bargaining. If you have worked paid overtime in the last two years, are in Amey Rail Bands A-C and you have not received a letter, contact your TSSA rep for help to ensure you get any payments that you are be entitled to.

Have you taken our Homeworking Survey yet?

Thanks to everyone who has already completed our online survey. We’re asking all Amey staff to take a few minutes to share their experiences of homeworking, whether homeworking is mandatory, optional or not possible. This will help your reps to negotiate a fair deal on homeworking practices and allowances. For more information and to take part, visit https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/AmeyHomework.
