Overtime rates to be restored
Civil service overtime rates that were abolished, adjusted or reduced under the 2013 Haddington Road agreement are to be fully restored from 1st July.
The restoration, which implements a commitment in the Building Momentum agreement, will see the abolition of the hour of unpaid overtime introduced under the HRA. This doesn’t include the standard arrangement for the first hour of overtime by HEOs and AOs, as this pre-dates the HRA.
The details are set out in a new civil service circular, which issued this week. It applies to general civil servants up to HEO and AO level.
