3.10 Retiring Leave

3.10.1 Except as provided by 3.10.2 below, a full-time caretaker on completion of 40 years’ service, or on completion of 10 or more years' service at age 60 or over, is entitled to qualify for retiring leave. The entitlement in working days ranges from 22 days after 10 years' eligible service to 131 days after 40 years' service. Service in excess of 40 years does not attract a greater retiring leave entitlement.

3.10.2 A permanent part-time caretaker who meets either criteria set out in 3.10.1 above and who was previously full-time but had his/her hours reduced as a result of clause 6.1 of this Agreement, shall also remain entitled to qualify for the Retiring Leave based upon his/her average weekly hours set over the five years immediately preceding the date of retirement (e.g., a full-time caretaker whose set hours are reduced to 30 exactly two years six months before retirement and who would have been entitled to 100 days, is entitled to 87.5 days i.e., the midpoint between 0.75 and 1).

3.10.3 Retiring leave entitlement is set out in working days below:
