Christmas Arrangements 2019
Branches will be aware that due to the current National dispute, the union has been offered no sight of the business’s operational plans for the pressure period and no discussions have taken place in relation to Christmas/New Year arrangements for the 2019/20 festive period.
Given that we would normally have engaged or concluded agreed arrangements by this stage, both departments have started to receive enquiries in relation to the approach representatives should adopt with any local discussions.
Attached for the information of Branches is a copy of a letter that has been sent to Simon Barker, outlining the CWU position with regard to this year’s Christmas Arrangements, in the absence of a specific agreement for 2019/20.
We believe the contents of the letter are self-explanatory and we would advise Branches and representatives to conduct any discussions in line with the position outlined.
Any enquiries in relation to this LTB should be addressed to the relevant department:
Processing/Area Distribution: email: firstname.lastname@example.org quoting reference number: 706A.10
Deliveries: email email@example.com quoting reference number: 170
