Bespoke Door 2 Door Item 5th and 6th May 2015
Branches and CWU representatives should by now be aware of a D2D drop scheduled for delivery on the 5th and 6th of May 2015 on behalf of the Labour Party. The items are due delivery on the days in question in line with the terms of the contract agreed between the Labour Party and Royal Mail. Due to the urgency of this contract and the lateness of the formal discussions we have agreed with Royal Mail that they will pay the current pence per item rate appropriate to the delivery unit for the delivery of the items in line with the national agreement covering the delivery of election material.
It is important that the delivery units affected enter into dialogue immediately to put plans in place to deal with the items.
The joint statement is designed to help CWU representatives and DOMs arrive at sensible operational arrangements through local dialogue. Whatever was agreed in respect of resourcing to workload for next week will need to be reviewed to varying degrees in light of the joint statement and the fall to earth of the items. Overall this contract applies to just over 4000 delivery routes and less that 10% of delivery addresses, so there are many units who will not be affected.
Serious consideration will need to be given to the provision of replenishment and any feeder runs required to support this; it is important that H&S issues are taken fully into consideration indoor and outdoor.
Attached to this LTB are the agreed Joint Statement and the files containing the postcodes, delivery routes and numbers of items due for delivery on each of the days.
It would be appreciated if all Branches could please ensure that this LTB is circulated to all Delivery offices and CWU Delivery representatives without delay.
