Joint Statement between Royal Mail and the CWU – Local Revision Activity
Branches and Representatives will be aware that the National Joint Statement, circulated via LTB 352/20 outlined the framework for phased National discussions to develop a joint strategy for Royal Mail Group, to rebuild trust and address the challenges the business is facing.
One of the key elements in the Joint Statement designed to rebuild trust was the immediate commitment to National discussions to develop, agree and deploy new local revision activity. The Joint Statement prioritises this commitment with a timeline for completion within the first two weeks of talks.
We have been made aware since the publication of the Joint Statement that managerial proposals on revision activity are being tabled at various locations across the Delivery, Processing and Distribution functions.
For the avoidance of doubt, National talks are now due to commence which will establish the agreed detail and content of revision activity in each function, the agreed processes for re-engagement and the timelines for any agreed program of revision activity. This detail/guidance will be communicated when the talks on this element of the Joint Statement have been concluded.
Representatives should therefore await further notification before engaging in local discussions relating to any revision proposals that are received.
Any enquiries in relation to this LTB should be addressed to:
Processing & Distribution: Davie Robertson, Assistant Secretary,
quoting reference 054.05.
Deliveries: Mark Baulch, Assistant Secretary,
quoting reference: 230.03.
