ROYAL MAIL GROUP: BUSINESS RECOVERY, TRANSFORMATION & GROWTH AGREEMENT – REVISED BALLOT TIMETABLE
The Postal Executive met yesterday and received a report from the Officers in regard to recent talks with RMG management. As a consequence, a revised ballot timetable has been agreed. Primarily this decision was made due to the requirement to create the right environment for the ballot to be conducted. In essence, we have seen no material change in attitude from management since the Agreement was endorsed by the Postal Executive and rather than working with the Union, there is not enough evidence of them moving away from the “it’s our business to run” mantra. Crucial to this is the need for the company to restore the IR Framework on the ground.
Specifically, Paragraph 2.5 of the BRT&G Agreement contains the commitment to agree measures required to put revisions right. Q of S and USO failings continue to be issues of concern. In this regard we met with Grant McPherson, COO last week and we have agreed to urgently hold a Joint forum of RODs / GMs and Div Reps. This forum is fundamental to impress upon senior operational managers the imperative of restoring the IR Framework Agreement and addressing the legitimate concerns we have in regard to the Operation and in particular, failed revisions.
The Postal Executive has therefore agreed the revised ballot timetable below to ensure the commitments to work together in the Agreement are in place prior to the ballot commencing.
