Improving Access to National Agreements and Information – DGS(P) Department Sharepoint Facility
Branches will be aware that in order to ensure Local Representatives have quick and easy access to information particularly in relation to revision activity, we have recently created a sharepoint facility that has a link to the CWU website and can be accessed through the use of a password.
Since the Pathway to Change national agreement was concluded earlier this year, there has been a drive to empower Local Representatives to reach agreements and develop local solutions. The Joint Dispute Resolution Training (Industrial Relations Framework) has highlighted this approach.
In order to build upon this work and to provide additional support at pace, the DGS(P) Department has been working with the Communications Department to develop a DGS(P) sharepoint site. Within this sharepoint there are various agreements and updates that relate to the deployment of the National Pathway to Change Agreement and the aspects that the DGS(P) Department are working to implement or those that have already been deployed.
There is also a quick link to the Four Pillars Agreement which is still relevant and complemented by the Pathway to Change Agreement and a huge part of our current direction and policy.
Branches and Representatives should be aware that the DGS(P) sharepoint can be accessed through the following link using the password **********. Those using a smart phone will also be able to use this to view the relevant information.
It is the intention to continue to add material to this sharepoint as and when further developments occur and new national agreements or Terms of Reference that relate to the DGS(P) Department are concluded.
In addition, Representatives will be able to download postal recruitment material whilst those industrial trainers that have attended the relevant train the trainer events will be able to view the most up to date and relevant industrial training material.
I am confident that the DGS(P) sharepoint facility will prove to be a useful tool in providing a swift link to our national agreements and other information from the Department and ultimately help representatives in the workplace. I would therefore encourage Branches to give this LTB the widest possible circulation so that all Unit Representatives are aware of this resource.
In closing I would like to thank Divisional Representative Bob McGuire and the Communications Department for their help in bringing this to fruition.
Any enquiries in relation to the content of this LTB should be addressed to the DGS(P) Department.
Deputy General Secretary (Postal)
