No changes can be made once returns have been sent to Weatherbys. Therefore, if you have a request or disagreement in the distribution of money from the pool, you should send it immediately, as the list cannot be changed after returning to Weatherbys. Representatives of the coaches and stable staff on Monday welcomed an agreement between the two parties as an “important step” in reconciling work and private life for racing staff. 11.2 The full agreement and the schedules and annexes attached to it constitute the overall agreement between the parties on all of the above issues and replace all previous agreements or agreements between the parties with respect to the issues covered in this agreement. 10.1 This agreement may be terminated by any party if it can give the other three months at the latest. The termination by a single member of the ABB has no impact on other parties to the agreement. Note by an agreement with HMRC that the total amount of these payments ($10 and $13.50) can now be paid tax-free, provided the employer meets the revised hmrc requirements in effect since April 6, 2016. To meet these requirements, the employer must apply to HMRC to use custom payments from the racing industry and have a control system to verify approximately 10% of the expense notes, to ensure that they are correct, namely that the employee has shopped and that the costs are incurred. 2.3 It was also agreed that, apart from the provisions of item 5, neither the ABB nor its members nor the Jockey Club intend to make the provisions of this agreement a legally binding agreement, and each party acknowledges that it has no other purpose than to clarify and expand the current oral agreement between the parties.
However, the ABB positively promotes the content of this agreement to its members in order to raise awareness and promote cooperation with the spirit and intent of this agreement. 2.1 This agreement is deemed to have commenced on January 15, 2004 and is in effect until it is terminated by a party in accordance with point 10 above. The termination by a single ABB member has no bearing on the agreement with other members, the ABB and the Jockey Club. 2.2 The parties agree and acknowledge that they are entering into this agreement in order to protect and preserve the integrity of horse racing. Following a historic agreement announced by the National Council for Stable Personnel (NJC), important steps have been taken to address the work-life balance of race staff. The agreement, which will be implemented from Monday 10 December, will allow for greater flexibility in the agreement between trainers and their employees. The Rotas previously defined in the agreement were calculated on the basis of a total of 85 hours over a two-week period. The new agreement, ratified by the NJC and which includes representatives of the National Trainers Federation (NTF) and the National Association of Racing Staff (NARS), is based on a 40-hour week with a 4% increase in minimum rates for this period. This is offset by a change in overtime rates. Overtime on the farm for more than 40 hours to ensure that 7-day horse assistance is paid at a one-and-a-half hour rate. Previously, hours on a Sunday were paid twice. The net effect will depend on specific schemes in each site, but should be 2.2%.
George McGrath, CEO of NARS, said, “We commend the NTF for overcoming the final hurdle that allows us to promote this important role in the industry as a career that can be alive, exciting, rewarding and on an equal footing with other professions that enable and enable a modern lifestyle.” For many years, it has been equally important that our members achieve a decent quality of life, and we are delighted to have been able to negotiate this agreement. The requirement of at least five hours on Saturday morning remains an integral part of the standard contract that ensures that trainers are able to achieve a sufficient level of coverage at the busiest time of the week.
