TO ALL BRANCHES WITH POSTAL MEMBERS
RE: Other Time off – Management Support Booklet
Branches and Representatives will wish to be aware of the attached booklet which Royal Mail is issuing this week to support managers in responding to requests for “Other Time Off”.
This is a Royal Mail document but the union has been consulted on the content. We continue to have some reservations on the wording of the “bereavement” bullet point on page 3 but it should be emphasised that if there is any conflict with the relevant Royal Mail policy statement(s) the policy statement continues to hold the field.
Overall I think the general tone of the booklet is positive but if any problems are experienced these should be reported to my department.
Any enquiries should be addressed to Ray Ellis’s department, quoting reference PTC/RE/dj/402. Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
