What does ‘Work to Rule’ mean?*


Union members will:

  • Only work the hours they are paid (including only travelling in work time)

  • Take the breaks they are entitled to

  • Not answer phones or emails outside work hours.

  • Except for emergency Search and Rescue, Fire or Civil Defence call outs, where life or property is at risk, or DOC members are providing essential services, staff won’t do duty hours or be on stand-by.

Basically, they will just do the jobs they are paid for.

DOC workers aren’t taking these steps lightly – but they do want to be taken seriously. What they want is for DOC, the State Services Commission and the government to understand that DOC staff work hard and are entitled to fair pay.
