Pathway to Change – Dispute Resolution Procedure and Amended Achieving Agreement Form
Further to LTB 199/21 circulated on 13th May 2021, this correspondence is to advise Branches and Representatives that there has been a further amendment agreed with Royal Mail to the introductory section of the Achieving Agreement Form.
Branches will see from the attached that an additional bullet point as a key message has been added under Reaching Local Agreement Principles. This relates to identifying whether a national agreement(s) is relevant to the disagreement and then making reference to the relevant part(s).
This point had initially been identified as part of the joint review work and recommendations that were originally completed as part of the joint commitment under Section Six of the Four Pillars Agreement but had been reviewed again following the endorsement of the Pathway to Change Agreement. Due to the timing of the review, it was not possible to include this additional point in the previous Achieving Agreement Form.
The business are also communicating this further change through their channels and confirming to their managers that the attached Achieving Agreement Form will now be the version in use.
Any enquiries in relation to the content of this LTB should be addressed to the DGS(P) Department.
Deputy General Secretary (Postal)
