RMPFS Pay Review April 2019

RMPFS Pay Review April 2019

Dear Colleagues,

As was previously advised to Branches in LTB 332/19, negotiations regarding the 2019 Pay Claim in RMPFS have been ongoing since the beginning of the year. The negotiating team has continued to press the pay related policies carried at last year’s RMPFS Policy Forum in Birmingham along with Annual Conference policy.

Whilst previously acknowledging that discussions are being conducted against the background of the tight financial targets placed on RMPFS by Royal Mail Group, these discussions have nevertheless, and up to this point been constructive. However the Union’s negotiating team has now received a closed offer from the company which falls short of the Union’s claim and is unacceptable. This pay offer has therefore been rejected by the Postal Executive.

Whilst the pay offer is a closed one and therefore does not represent RMPFS final pay offer or final position, it is extremely disappointing that although some small progress has been made on pay, there remains a fundamental difference between the respective negotiating teams on the issue of pensions.

Joint discussions are continuing and further meetings are scheduled to take place in the coming weeks. Branches will be updated on progress accordingly.

Any enquires regarding this LTB should be directed to the Outdoor Department, reference 120.12, email address: outdoorsecretary@cwu.org.

Or to Ray Ellis, reference 301, email address: khawkins@cwu.org.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Baulch   CWU Assistant Secretary
