CWU/RM National Terms of Reference – Uniform Trial New Lighter Weight
Further to LTB 691.18 and the agreed trial of a new lighter weight polo shirt (unisex).
We can now confirm that the new lighter weight Polo Shirt, which is based on fabric 200gsm as opposed to the current 250gsm will now be adopted by Royal Mail, this is as a result of the scheduled review of the trial as set out in the Terms of Reference, and based on positive feedback received from both individuals involved in the trial and the Newcastle Amal Branch (which covered all the listed trial site workplaces).
Whilst this is viewed as a positive and welcomed development in terms of seeking further and ongoing improvements to the current uniform range, the new lighter version of the Polo Shirt will however not be in stock or available for general order until around July/August due to a 4-5 month manufacturing lead in time.
We believe therefore that the new lighter weight Polo Shirt will be both welcomed by both Branches and members.
Any enquires in relation to this LTB should be directed to the Outdoor Department, reference 500, email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
