JOINT STATEMENT BETWEEN THE CWU AND ROYAL MAIL GROUP
UPDATE ON SYSTEMISATION & BACKPAY OF AVERAGE PAY ON ANNUAL LEAVE (HOLIDAY PAY) FOR LGV DRIVERS
Branches and Representatives will be aware that payment of average pay on annual leave for LGV Drivers had been complicated due to how ad-hoc overtime had been recorded and whether the 2014 or 2021 holiday agreement was being applied to payments. To resolve this issue, a Joint Statement was endorsed and communicated in July 2022 (LTB 319/22 refers).
The Joint Statement endorsed in July 2022 included Changes to Overtime Inputting for LGV Drivers from 26thSeptember 2022, which provided an interim manual solution for calculations. However, issues remained with the ability to input LGV pre-scheduled overtime into the RM PSP system on an automated basis, as was being done in other functions.
The business recently informed the department that the PSP data issues had now been addressed, which means that they are now able to include LGV drivers within the PSP overtime holiday pay system solution from April 2023 onwards. From this point, where individuals meet the national agreement’s eligibility criteria around regularity of overtime, Ad-Hoc overtime holiday payments will be paid in the month the holiday falls. This will replace the manual 6-monthly assessments applied to date.
This will now mirror the existing process for Prescheduled Overtime for LGV Drivers paid in line with the 2014 Improved Scheduled Attendance Holiday Pay agreement.
Employees will be able to view the assessment data in the Holiday pay tile of the Employee App, and raise any queries via the App.A Joint Statement has been concluded and endorsed by the Postal Executive, a copy of which is attached for information.
Any enquiries in relation to this LTB should be addressed to Davie Robertson, Assistant Secretary, email: firstname.lastname@example.org quoting reference: 202.09.
