ROYAL MAIL GROUP DISPUTES: COMPULSORY REDUNDANCIES

ROYAL MAIL GROUP DISPUTES: COMPULSORY REDUNDANCIES

Branches are advised RMG wrote to the union on 28th November (Appendix 1) in respect of Compulsory Redundancies, seeking to establish an agreed selection criteria.  The Postal Executive today unanimously endorsed the attached response (Appendix 2) which makes it clear Compulsory Redundancy is utterly unacceptable to this union and our members.

RMG have indicated they plan to include Conduct and Attendance as part of the selection criteria, along with capability/skills and what they call “any other appropriate criteria”.  If RMG were to apply this approach they would be able to dismiss whoever they choose, which we cannot tolerate under any circumstances.

Compulsory Redundancy is an anathema to this union and that’s why we wrote to Zareena Brown, Chief People Officer, on 25th October stating we “will not engage in inappropriate discussions on Compulsory Redundancies, let alone agreeing any selection criteria.”  Our objective remains to reach a proper long-term job security agreement for our members.  Accordingly, the Postal Executive is adamant there can be no Compulsory Redundancies.

In view of these disturbing developments, Branches and Reps are urged to bring this matter to the attention of our members over the coming days including when addressing picket lines.  We need to expose the despicable attitude of RMG, who evidently are preparing for Compulsory Redundancies.

Yours sincerely

Dave Ward                                            Andy Furey
General Secretary                             Acting Deputy General Secretary (Postal)
