The MUT refers to the “Leave Entitlement for Education Grades” in the State Sectoral Agreement, clause 6.1 point (ii) where it states that “Special Leave can only be availed of in periods of not less than 30-minute blocks”. The Union would like to clarify that what this means is that Special Leave bookings cannot be less than 30 minutes each time they are booked and that educators can book 30, 40, 45 or any other amount of Special Leave needed as long as it is not less than 30 minutes. What this does NOT mean is that it has to be in 30-minute blocks only (30, 60, 90 minutes) as some are interpreting it erroneously.
