Education leave entitlements

 Organising People Training Course, Wellington, 13 Feb 2007 Finsec has just written to all the employers where Finsec members work letting them now how many days of paid employment related education leave (EREL) our members are entitled to this year. For some of our bigger employers it’s quite a lot. For instance Finsec members at Westpac are entitled between them to 88 paid employment education days and Finsec members at ANZ are entitled to 81. Even our member at some of our smallest employers, like Farmlands Trading Society and Credit Union Canterbury, are entitled to at least 3 days of paid EREL. So, chances are that if you want to learn more about being an active union member and improving your workplace, you will be entitled to paid leave to to that.

All union members are entitled to attend EREL, and you continue to be paid by your employer while on education leave. Members that have been on our courses say they have a much better understanding of Finsec afterwards and increased skills to win changes in their workplace. EREL helps build fair workplaces and a strong union, by teaching the issues and skills people need to improve their working conditions.

You can read more about Finsec’s range of EREL courses which teach about your rights at work, techniques to build Finsec membership, and skills to work to improve your workplace here.
