ROYAL MAIL: POST OFFICE PAY INCREASE OF 2.5% FOR EX-POST OFFICE “SAFENET” MEMBERS WORKING IN ROYAL MAIL
Branches will recall (refer to LTB 704/18 which is attached for your information) that we have a number of members (c.130) who were redeployed from Post Office “Safenet” duties back into the Royal Mail operation under MTSF in 2009.
Following our representations, Mark Rush, Head of ER/IR, Operations has formally confirmed that these ex Post Office members will receive the Post Office pay increase of 2.5% for year two of the two year pay agreement (from 1st April 2019) rather than the 2% increase applicable to Royal Mail members under the Four Pillars Agreement. Refer to LTB 200/19 dated 29th March for full details of the Post Office pay agreement. This increase is on top of the 2.8% these members have already received for year one of the Post Office pay agreement (refer again to LTB 704/18).
Royal Mail HR Services are currently processing the pay uplift so the plan is that weekly paid members will get the increase in next week’s wages (and the week’s back pay) and for monthly paid members the increase will be applied at end of April.
I would be grateful if Branches could bring this positive development to the attention of our ex-Post Office members working in Royal Mail.
