Rugby World Cup – how will finance sector workers fare?

Tickets are being purchased, travel plans are made – but finance sector workers will have to consider not only our plans as rugby fans, but what it means for our work over the period of the tournament.

BNZ staff have already received communications from managers that they can anticipate a huge increase in workload over the period. The bank’s response – that annual leave over the November-January period will be strictly limited.

BNZ Union Councillor Tania Cooper said that staff understood that workloads would be increased, but that they needed to be part of planning on how to manage the increased workload.

“Even during the Rugby World Cup, life goes on – including Christmas and school holidays,” said Tania. “Many staff need to take leave over this period. We want to work with the bank to ensure the workload is manageable, but we also need the impact on staff to be considered.”

Finsec will be raising planning for the Rugby World Cup with all of the major banks as part of our quarterly forums this year.
