ROYAL MAIL/DIMENSIONS UNIFORM ‘ROADSHOW’ WORKPLACE VISITS – ADDITIONAL DATES FOR 2019 (& ‘MINI-FOOTWEAR’ ROADSHOWS)
Further to Letter to Branches 246/19, dated the 18th of April, Branches are advised that a further Uniform Roadshow event has now been added to those already planned to be held by Royal Mail and their uniform supplier Dimensions up to November.
The further workplace to be visited is:
North London Delivery Centre – 20th August (07:00am -10:00am)
Additionally, Royal Mail have been holding some ‘Mini-Footwear’ events during this month and plan to hold more of these events in the following Delivery Offices (noting that this may be subject to some short notice alterations):
Hull CDO – 7th August (07:30am-08:30am)
Dronfield DO – 9th August (07:30am-08:30am)
Sheffield South DO – 12th August (07:30am-08:30am)
Sheffield CDO – 13th August (07:30am-08:30am)
Chesterfield DO – 15th August (07:30am-08:30am)
Manvers DO – 16th August (07:30am-08:30am)
Sheffield West DO – 22nd August (07:30am-08:30am)
Sheffield South West DO – 23rd August (07:30am-08:30am)
These ‘Mini-Footwear’ workplace visits are simply to cover the current Royal Mail footwear range and both parties have agreed to review the benefits, or otherwise, of these events against the wider remit of the general Uniform Roadshows going forward.
As reported to Branches before, these Roadshow events have proven to be very successful and largely welcomed by members since they started last year and in addition to offering details on the current uniform range and addressing particular individual questions and enquires, they also aim to give members more information on such issues as how to self-order uniform, how to return unwanted items and the process to follow for orders which are over the individual’s members uniform allocation.
In setting out this further Uniform Roadshow workplace visit, it can be confirmed that a number of the previous listed Offices have been nominated by CWU Branches and Royal Mail have confirmed that further consideration will be given to any additional visit requests made. Therefore, if Branches wishes to request a Uniform Roadshow visit for a particular workplace, they are invited to do so by writing into the Outdoor Department. Equally, those workplaces which have already been nominated by Branches for such future visits have not been overlooked and will be added to the next phase of Roadshow events which will be planned once the Royal Mail uniform tendering contract process has been completed (details of which are set out in LTB 063/19).
Whilst the details of this LTB are hopefully self-explanatory, any enquires or requests for such Uniform Roadshow visits to a workplace should be directed to the Outdoor Department, reference 500, email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
