Processing Report




Strategic Involvement (SI) Meeting

We discussed the importance of stopping diverting out 2c parcels to Mount Pleasant on Monday night/Tuesday morning. We are reducing the diversion from 75 York’s to 49 York’s next week and then we are not going to divert any bank holiday Monday week. We are resourcing and planning to secure that we do not fail the 2c on that week. It is important that we do not fail now that we will be entering negotiations about the Ipswich 2c we currently process which there has been a proposal to move 76% of it to Chelmsford in the Ipswich Mail Centre rationalisation project. We would not have a very good argument to keep the work if we keep diverting out to Mount Pleasant every week, so it has to stop and we are relying on everyone to help us make this a success.

We will prioritise working on a robust processing duty structure to bring stability to the operation.

Para: Ongoing.


Processing Duty Structure

I shall be released from week commencing 11th May to work with the Production Control Manager on creating a robust processing duty structure to give us stability going forward for the future. We shall be visiting all shifts to discuss their proposals with the shift manager and shift rep.

We will be arranging a meeting with Steve Wiseman who is the head of Royal Mails management team overseeing the Ipswich Mail Centre Rationalisation to give us a presentation on the effect their proposals may have on our Mail Centre.
