Royal Wedding Dispute

The Royal Wedding caused an interesting dispute at OH's place of employment.
On WEDNESDAY morning the management announced that as Friday was a PUBLIC holiday and not a BANK holiday.......normal rates of pay would be in effect for those drivers who chose to work.
On WEDNESDAY afternoon the drivers announced that as it was a PUBLIC holiday they were entitled to be paid their normal rate whether they worked or not......so why would they choose to work for the same pay as they would get for staying at home.
On THURSDAY the management announced that BANK holiday rates would be paid for those drivers who chose to work Friday.
Dispute over.
