EASTER BANK HOLIDAY
Easter Saturday, 11th April 2020 – Non-Service Day
Further to LTB 185/20 circulated on 6th April, please find attached the response the union has received from Sally Ashford, Chief HR Officer at RMG. Colleagues will note that unfortunately the business has declined to action the CWU’s proposal on the grounds that seeking to declare a non-service day at this time would not be consistent with the company’s objectives. Obviously this response is disappointing, especially in light of the additional pressures that many postal workers have faced during this difficult time and the fact that having the Saturday off would have allowed them a much needed break with their families.
Bank Holiday Policy
Colleagues will also note that in response to my letter of 8th April (attached) the company has confirmed that the current bank holiday policy in respect of overtime payments and Lieu Days has not been changed and should therefore be applied without any difficulty.
Any enquiries in relation to the content of this LTB should be addressed to the DGS(P) Department.
