POST OFFICE: PRODUCT SPECIALIST BONUS SCHEME – QUARTER 4 PAYMENT
Branches are advised that we have reached an agreement with the Post Office for bonus payments for Travel and Mails Product Specialists for Quarter 4 – January to March 2021.
The agreement provides for a maximum possible £250 bonus for both the Mails Product Specialists and the Travel Product Specialists. As per the arrangements described in LTB 019/2021, these payments have been agreed despite the absence of targets as a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Below is a Joint Statement explaining that this will be the final payment for the quarterly bonus scheme as both bonus payments and the inpay allowance have now been consolidated in basic pay as part of the 2020/21 pay award.
