Have been looking for an appropriate thread to post my following questions, hope this is the right place.
I have read through PN's/RTBU's EBA and would just like to find out a more 'direct' answer in regards to timeoff/holidays for those working in the rail industry. I guess to be specific - working for PN as part of the train crew.
How much time off/days off would a trainee expect to have during their first year with the company.
How does this differ to an employee who has completed their training and working 'fully qualified'?
I ask as I am looking to enter the industry in the very near future, hopefully as a trainee driver, but I also wish to holiday overseas in that same time frame too. Is it a case of gain employment and say goodbye to 'holidays' (ie. 10+consecutive days) until your eligable for anual leave?
