Leave balance issues for OCS members

Kia ora OCS union members,

This is an update regarding the annual leave balance problem that some of you have experienced, with many members discovering they have zero or negative leave balances.

We have one of the top union layers working on this case with us. We strongly believe that what OCS have done with some people’s leave balance is illegal. 

Taking this case won’t however be a quick fix. We will update you when we have more news but wanted to reassure you that we are taking this very seriously.

In the meantime, make sure to try and get your workmates to join E tū if they haven’t already. We can be stronger when we take on these issues together, and every union member counts!

As always, if you have any questions about this or need any support from E tū, email support@etu.nz or call 0800 1 UNION (0800 186 466).
