As part of the national collective framework agreement on the 2018 pay deal, staff employed in ambulance trusts can voluntarily opt to move from annex 5 to section 2 unsocial hours payments.

Employees will need to read this information before applying for section 2 payments and employers will need to ensure their local arrangements for processing application are in line with the guidance.
