POST OFFICE: ADMIN & SUPPLY CHAIN BONUS SCHEMES 2019/20
Despite the fact we have a Collective Agreement and the bonus scheme is part of our members’ terms & conditions, there has been speculation on social media amongst our members as they are concerned the Post Office may seek to avoid its commitments to pay a bonus as a consequence of the £100m+ Horizon costs. As a result, discussions have been held recently and the following Joint Statement has been agreed and is being published today:
Joint Statement – Admin and Supply Chain bonus schemes 19/20
Although we are currently unable to confirm the Post Office financial performance results for 2019/20, Post Office and CWU want to give some assurances to all colleagues in Supply Chain and Admin with regards to bonus payments.
As soon as Post Office’s financial results have been confirmed, we will announce via a further joint statement the bonus payments. We anticipate this will be in the first week in August.
We would like to confirm that it is the intention to pay bonus in August salaries.

Employee Relations & Assistant Secretary
Policy Director CWU
Hopefully the above JS will bring some degree of reassurance to our members.
