JOINT STATEMENT BETWEEN ROYAL MAIL AND THE CWU COVERING THE DEPLOYMENT OF MASTER MOVER ALL TERRAIN ATP400 PEDESTRIAN OPERATED ELECTRIC TUG AND MODIFIED PEDESTRIAN POWERED PALLET TRUCK FOR THE MOVEMENT OF NESTED YORK CONTAINERS IN THE MAIL CENTRE & REGIONAL DISTRIBUTION CENTRE NETWORK 

JOINT STATEMENT BETWEEN ROYAL MAIL AND THE CWU COVERING THE DEPLOYMENT OF MASTER MOVER ALL TERRAIN ATP400 PEDESTRIAN OPERATED ELECTRIC TUG AND MODIFIED PEDESTRIAN POWERED PALLET TRUCK FOR THE MOVEMENT OF NESTED YORK CONTAINERS IN THE MAIL CENTRE & REGIONAL DISTRIBUTION CENTRE NETWORK 
Dear Colleagues
 
Branches will be aware that in May 2015 the department issued LTB 341/15 Joint Statement between Royal Mail and the CWU Covering the Deployment of Mastermover ATP400 for the Movement of Nested York Containers in the Mail Centre and Regional Distribution Centre Network.
Subsequently in January 2016, a Terms of Reference was endorsed by the Postal Executive to allow further trial activity to take place in relation to using the ATP400 to load nested Yorks on a dock leveler at North West Regional Distribution Centre (NWRDC), Yorkshire Distribution Centre (YDC) and Leeds Mail Centre. In addition the TOR also covered a proposed modification in relation to a Pedestrian Powered Pallet Truck for the movement of nested York Containers in the Mail Centre and Regional Distribution Centre network. 
The trial activity has now concluded and recommendation from the Trial Coordination Working Group has been received that the changes that were trialed are suitable for deployment and the relevant H&S document has been concluded. 
The department has therefore concluded a Joint Statement with the business to enable the deployment to take place. A copy of the Joint Statement is attached for the information of Branches along with the relevant safety documentation.
Colleagues will note that in line with previous agreements the Joint Statement provides for continued full CWU involvement in the deployment activity.
Branches are requested to ensure that this LTB and the attached Joint Statement is brought to the attention of our representatives and members.
Any enquiries in relation to this LTB should be addressed to Davie Robertson, Assistant Secretary, email: dwyatt@cwu.org or shayman@cwu.org quoting reference number: 715.16
Yours sincerely
 
 
Davie Robertson  
Assistant Secretary
