Weekend overtime restored
by Bernard Harbor
Dublin City Council management has agreed to reinstate one-hour’s double time for overseers, who supervised road maintenance crews when working weekends. Fórsa raised the issue last month after a member has tried and failed to solve it since late 2015.
Management has now ordered a review of all timesheets from late 2015, and reimbursement for staff who have lost out.
Timesheets and pay slips have to be assessed to prove the earlier existence of this payment. This payment had been removed without consultation or negotiation.
