Well as it says some people are working some are off. I'm working all of it i'd rather get the overtime for working it and then take the time off when i want it and not when i'm forced too. If i haven't got anything planned to do then it's just a waste of holiday days

Alot of people are complaining about it but not doing anything about it. So my question really is, why does this country only seem to become deeply religious so they can get time off work, times like easter bank holidays and Xmas hoildays?

I'd happily work bank holidays most of the time but I've a dispute with my employer over overtime rates on bank holidays, so if they won't pay me what I'm due I'll be beggered if I'm going to work for them.

besides, this time I could do with the break so I'll make the best of a few days off.

Even though our company is cutting the overtime multiplier, I am working easter. I get the days added to my Holiday entitlement and use them as I want. I do get Christmas off due to no buses running but I would work those as well if they were there.

Got Easter off, my units accountant kindly informed my boss that I was one of the most expensive nurses to pay weekend and bank holiday rates to. I was promptly told that I'm no longer allowed to work weekends











I love my accountant, I'm going to send her an Easter egg to say thanks

I work all week ends from 1st April untill 1st November.:(

actually this will be the first year in...15Yrs! that I'm not going to work any sundays. Saturday is a departure day so I can't get out of that one. Bank holidays are always big days for us so we just work them & get the days back at Christmas.
I'm planning to leave from work sat evening a ride down to parents in laws for sunday cos wifey & kids have gone down there for the long week end, but the weather looks crap so we'll see...
