JOINT STATEMENT FUTURE DEVELOPMENT AND DEPLOYMENT OF ROUTE EXCELLENCE
Branches and representatives will recall that, Appendix B, the Parcelforce Worldwide section of the Agreement between Royal Mail Group and the Communication Workers Union Regarding Guiding Principles of Employment Security and a Mutual Interest Approach to Future Challenges and Opportunities, determined that the achievement of the first hour reduction in the Working Week was linked to the Route Excellence (REX) process being fully deployed. Discussions and activity have been taking place with the business to ensure that this key element of the agreement can be delivered
Extensive activity has taken place since 2015 in relation to the REX system to ensure that the product is fit for purpose, which has been overseen by the Table of Success REX Working Group (LTB 336/17 refers).
The Working Group has now recommended to the National Steering Group that the process is ready to be introduced on a phased basis to all depots. Therefore discussions have taken place with the business to conclude a further Joint Statement – Future Development & Deployment of Route Excellence to facilitate the activity. This Joint Statement to enable the deployment activity to commence has now been concluded and endorsed by the Postal Executive. A copy is attached for your information.
Branches and representatives are requested to ensure that our PFW members are made aware of the contents of this LTB and the commencement of the REX deployment activity.
