SDLP request urgent meeting with Head of the Civil Service over holiday pay claims

SDLP Leader Colum Eastwood MLA has requested an urgent meeting with the Head of the Civil Service to discuss a Court of Appeal ruling on holiday pay that will have significant implications for public sector workers and budgets.

He said:

 

“The Court of Appeal ruling is significant for public sector workers, and indeed those in the private sector, and for future budgets.

 

“Given the immense scale of claims likely to now come forward and the breadth of public bodies affected, I have requested an urgent meeting with the Head of the Civil Service to discuss what action has been taken in anticipation of such a ruling, current engagement with Trade Unions and the projected impact on future budgets.

 

“This matter must be dealt with in a way that meets the needs of public sector workers, respects the ruling of the court and protects budgetary integrity so that public services are not impacted.”
