Staff offered a move to an ‘acting-up’ position are required to work 37 hours under Haddington Road.
In Appendix 9 of the Agreement it is stipulated that the implementation of additional hours for Admin. and Library staff in DCU applies on a personal to holder basis, and that this special arrangement will only apply in the cases of these specific grades/workers.
Therefore, if those at these grades gain a promotion (which acting-up posts are taken to be), a standard working week of 37 hours will apply.
This means that, although you may be temporarily on higher pay, you will be working at least two more hours a week.
