ROYAL MAIL PROPERTY & FACILITIES SOLUTIONS LIMITED (RMPFSL) – PAY AND ASSOCIATED ISSUES AGREEMENT – FURTHER POINTS OF CLARIFICATION
Further to Letter To Branches (LTB 072/23) issued on 14th March which announced that our members in Royal Mail Property & Facilities Solutions Limited (RMPFSL) had overwhelmingly accepted the Pay and Associated Issues Agreement.
Following a number of enquiries, we are now able to provide Branches and members with further information linked to the improvements within the Agreement. These have been confirmed by RMPFSL as follows:-
I am a cleaner in the London area, how will I know if I am entitled to a bridge payment?
This will depend on the total percentage increase you received in base pay over two years. You will receive confirmation of what this means for you by the end of the month, if not sooner.
I understand that the arrears to pay will be paid on 31st March 2023. But when will the London bridge payment be made?
The London bridge payment will be paid on 28th April 2023, as the focus has been on processing and ensuring that back pay is paid at the end of March.
I am currently entitled to 20 days annual leave, when will my annual leave entitlement change to the improved 22.5 days per annum?
This will be effective from 1st April 2023 (pro-rata for part time workers). The additional entitlement will be visible on PSP or the People App from May onwards.
When will the change to Maternity, Adoption, Paternity & Shared Parental Leave pay come into effect?
We will harmonise to the Royal Mail Group Maternity, Adoption, Paternity & Shared Parental leave policy for all CWU grades from 1st April 2023. This means any new periods of leave starting from 1st April onwards will benefit from these enhanced terms.
What are the changes to pensions and when do they take effect?
We are uplifting the first level company contributions for PFSL DC Scheme and the NEST company contribution by 1%. This means NEST members will now benefit from 4% company contribution and entry level to the DC scheme will benefit from 6% company contribution. These changes will take effect 1st April 2023.
