Following representations from the Honourable J J Della Bosca, Minister for Industrial Relations, the Commission has decided to put in place the following arrangements for January 2006.
The usual arrangements for a duty judge to be on duty and in attendance at the Commission during the entire period of the law vacation (that is, 19 December 2005 - 27 January 2006) will be in place.
Similarly, the usual arrangements for a duty commissioner to be on duty for the period 26 December 2005 - 6 January 2006 will remain in place with all Commissioners on duty or on call from 9 January 2006.
Additionally, Presidential Members of the Commission will be available during January 2006 to deal with matters requiring expedition or urgency as appropriate.
The procedure as to applications for expedition or urgency is well known to those who practice or appear in the Commission. In any event an announcement was placed on the Commission's website last month detailing the procedure. Click
