Lost in translation
If any service provider is on a call out, he will get paid for his time, even if covered by fixed fee. Why should interpreters be expected to travel 1 hour each way without pay and 10 miles each way, again without pay?
Why can't they claim their travel tickets in full( they are offered paid under the same petty mileage scheme, which in some cases only covers a quarter of their expenses) and they are not reimbursed for parking? This is the average 40 hours a weeks steady job. You are expected to be by the phone, ready to jump in your car at any time, day or night and support the JUSTICE SYSTEM! well,t there is no justice in this ALS agreement!
Personally, I would have thought MOJ and exclusivity (in providing PSI's to Courts and police) cannot be in the same sentence, but that is obviously, not what the MOJ thinks. Shame on them!
