ROYAL MAIL: PATHWAY TO CHANGE AGREEMENT: DELIVERING THE SHORTER WORKING WEEK IN HR STRATEGY & SERVICES (HRS&S)

Further to our interim Joint Statement published on 17th March(attached) I am pleased to advise Branches and our members in HRS&S that following a number of negotiating meetings with HRS&S management, an agreement has now been reached with regards to delivering the Shorter Working Week.  The following JS which outlines our final position has been agreed today:

Both HRS&S and CWU recognise the criticality of the Pathway to Change Agreement to the future of Royal Mail Group and all our people; and acknowledge the key role that HRS&S have in delivering these changes for all CWU represented colleagues across the Company. 

Constructive dialogue between both parties has continued in recent weeks; and our previous agreed position that the changes needed to deliver this reduction will be achieved through a mix of multi-skilling and productivity improvements remains unchanged. 

Our agreement that the Shorter Working Week, will be implemented across HRS&S for all teams at the same time remains the cornerstone of our agreed way forward. Having reviewed the flight paths to implementation for each of the process areas across HRS&S, we can now confirm that we have agreed to implement the hour’s reduction with effect from Monday 27 September 2021.

In closing, this has been a constructive set of negotiations and I’m sure our members working in HRS&S will welcome the implementation of the hour off the working week in September.

Yours sincerely

Andy Furey

Assistant Secretary
