National Terms of Reference – Uniform Trial New Maternity Trousers
(In Line with the New Uniform Range)
In line with this switch over to a new uniform range, which is due to be completed in December this year, talks have been held regarding the need to review and update the current Maternity Trousers available within Royal Mail. Due to the required nature of the trial, the new Maternity Trousers will be trialled in line with applications for maternity wear by employees and as such will be limited in numbers.
As a result of discussions with Royal Mail and the CWU, it has been agreed to hold a limited trial of volunteers of the new Maternity Trousers, entitled the ‘Maternity Cargo Trouser’ by Royal Mail, in line with the standard Terms of Reference used for uniform trials and an image of which is attached in Appendix A. The trial will commence in February 2022 and will be held over a 4 to 6 week period.
Those employees who volunteer to participate in the trial will be issued with 1 pair of the new Maternity Trousers (based on a ‘first come-first served’ basis which will not impact on the individual current and full maternity wear allocation) and will be subject to size availability.
However, the current Polo Shirt Maternity Top introduced in 2019 will remain unchanged.
This is another further welcomed development in terms of maternity wear and seeks to build on the former improvements of the new style and designed Polo Shirt Maternity Top introduced back in 2019.
