PSC joint circular 122 - The Queen's platinum jubilee

Dear colleague

The Government has confirmed that there will be an additional bank holiday to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Therefore, the late May bank holiday will be moved to Thursday 2 June 2022 and an additional Jubilee bank holiday will be on Friday 3 June 2022. 

In accordance with section 3, paragraph 2, of the PSC Handbook, all employees will be entitled to a holiday with a normal day’s pay on the additional bank holiday (pro-rata for part-time employees). Where employees work the additional bank holiday, they will be covered by the arrangements at section 2, paragraph 12.

Yours sincerely

Ben Priestley
Trade Union Side Secretary
