Four Pillars of Security and Pay: Appendix A
Further to LTB470 issued on 20th August, discussions with Royal Mail Fleet have continued. At its meeting on 6th November, the Postal Executive considered and on the recommendation of the negotiators rejected a closed offer from Fleet. Further discussions have taken place subsequently and at the time of writing a revised offer from Fleet is awaited.
I am aware that various rumours have been circulating about the terms of the Fleet offer. Whilst it would not be sensible or helpful for me to comment on the complex package of terms and conditions currently under discussion until a revised offer is received, I can say that the second hand reports which have been circulating are inaccurate in almost all respects. An information vacuum always generates rumours and I understand the frustration of members of the lack of solid news but it is clear that negotiations are largely concluded and a revised final offer from Fleet is expected imminently.
