RMG/CWU Clarification on Re-engagement for Joint Revision Activity in Collections
Branches and representatives will be aware that the recently communicated LTB 047/23 – National Joint Statement – A New Process for Talks gives the following commitment in Para 9.
Revision activity and re-engagement in Parcelforce and other functions will be in line with the spirit and intent of this statement and will be subject to urgent separate discussion with the respective CWU national officers and Royal Mail functional directors.
Urgent discussions have therefore been taking place with the Collections function to finalise clarification that specifically focuses on a number of key topics that are required in order to move forwards with Collection Revision planning and implementation. Discussions have concluded with a document being agreed and endorsed by the Postal Executive, a copy of which is attached for your information.
The document ensures that our representatives are able to input and challenge in respect of proposed or deployed revision activity. The document also refers back to and reaffirms commitments given in previous agreements in respect of revision activity and ensures that all related people issues have been addressed.
In addition, Annex A to the document addresses the approach to include workload in Delivery where Postboxes have moved to Collection on Delivery.
It is also confirmed that the previous National Collections JWG structure will be re-established to ensure future collection associated activity can be progressed jointly.
Given the extremely tight timelines associated to the activity representatives are requested to engage with management with immediate effect in order to progress discussions/activity
in line with the principles of the National Joint Statement and attached clarification document.
