RMG/CWU Business Recovery, Transformation and Growth Agreement – Lord Falconer Review of Conduct Cases (Appendix 7)

RMG/CWU Business Recovery, Transformation and Growth Agreement – Lord Falconer Review of Conduct Cases (Appendix 7)

Further to LTB 123/23 dated 18th May, Branches are advised we have now submitted 2 further batches of consent forms to RMG totalling 126 to date.  Branches will have received an email receipt via independent-review@cwu.orgfor each consent form submitted.  Please contact Rob Wotherspoon, Postal Executive, via the dedicated email address if the acknowledgement has not been received.  In line with the words of Appendix 7, “The Review will cover:  Individual cases of both CWU members and CWU representatives referred to it by the union”.  To be clear, the union will be reviewing all casefiles received along with any documentation provided by RMG and submitting all appropriate cases to the Independent Review and the submissions will be totally at the discretion of the union, not RMG.

Suspended Members/Representatives – Consent Forms Required

Lord Falconer has directed that Consent forms have to be submitted by this Friday, 26th May; however, we expect there to be some legitimate exceptions to this, such as where conduct decisions have not been notified to individuals along with those members who are still suspended (currently believed to be 37 people) and are therefore yet to face disciplinary charges.  With regard to the latter, we will be writing directly to all Branches who have suspended members/Reps, asking them to provide a separateconsent form on the basis there is the potential that the suspension may ultimately lead to a disciplinary penalty.  The Consent forms need to be sent into the dedicated email address: independent-review@cwu.org

Branches are reminded to give the Independent Review their fullest attention, particularly the provision of all case papers to the dedicated email address.

Yours sincerely

Dave Ward – General Secretary
