Royal Mail: Pathway to Change Agreement: Delivering the Shorter Working Week in the National Returns Centre
We are pleased to advise that an agreement has now been reached with regards to delivering the Shorter Working Week in the National Returns Centre.
Constructive dialogue between both parties has continued over recent weeks and we can now confirm that joint targets have been agreed to enable the Shorter Working Week, which will be implemented from the 19th July 2021, with a 15 minute reduction at the end of the day Monday to Thursday.
Both Royal Mail and the CWU acknowledge the way in which colleagues have responded to the unprecedented challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic and wish to thank you for your continued hard work.
I wish to extend my thanks to our Area Admin Representative, Gerry Loughran, for his support in helping to bring this matter to a positive conclusion and I’m certain the agreement will be well received by our NRC members.
