The trust have put together a number of FAQs around the decrease in the number of staff that are able to take annual leave from the end of November 2018 to April 2019.
These changes see an increased time where the restrictions on the number of staff able to be on annual leave are reduced by 25% (Late Nov 2018 and Jan-March 2019.) The 50% reduction in Dec 2018 to early 2019 is very similar dates to last years limits.
The EADT ran a news story on this today.
Need to Know has also added a news story where the trust has apologised for the way the decision was communicated and have confirmed that the leave limits were not agreed with UNISON .
