LTB 210/23 - ROYAL MAIL NATIONAL ALLOWANCE REVIEW 2023

No. 210/23


16th August 2023


Dear Colleagues,


ROYAL MAIL NATIONAL ALLOWANCE REVIEW 2023


 On the evening of 10th August it became apparent the deck of slides attached at appendix 1 entitled ‘National allowance review 2023’ were in circulation in the field.


The nine slides in question outline an unagreed procedure for “managers to review allowances paid to employees” and also provides the detail of the various allowances to be reviewed. Additionally, pay protection and ‘common misconceptions around MtSF’ also feature in the content.


Branches and Representatives should be aware this presentation has not been shared with the Union and neither have we been asked for our input into the process.


As a result, I sent the correspondence attached at appendix 2 to the Chief People Officer on Friday 11th August to express concern about the manner in which this initiative had come to light and asked why the Union had not been approached, given the joint commitment to improving employee and industrial relations in the Business Recovery, Transformation and Growth agreement.


In the past once a review of allowances has been completed a number of overpayment cases have been identified by RM with this in turn resulting in numerous instances of members being told to repay money.


To be clear the overpayments recovery process is covered by the national joint statement and nationally agreed process for an overpayment discussion attached at appendices 3 and 4. This is the procedure that should be adopted when supporting members who receive correspondence relating to alleged overpayments and was originally circulated via LTB 360/15 in June 2015.


I have requested an urgent meeting to discuss the national allowance review and hope the Company will see the merit of maintaining the previous joint approach in respect of this activity.


Further developments will be reported in due course.


Yours sincerely,

Andy Furey

A/Deputy General Secretary (Postal)
