Pathway to Change Agreement - Improving Efficiency / Productivity - Productivity Joint Working Group

No. 192/21


12th May 2021


Dear Colleagues,


Pathway to Change Agreement – Improving Efficiency / Productivity – Productivity Joint Working Group (PJWG) Recommendations


Colleagues will recall that the terms of the Pathway to Change Agreement (Section 2.6) committed RMG and CWU to work together to implement new, efficient and productive ways of working and to raise overall standards across the operation.


The concept of the Joint Working Group (JWG) was agreed under the terms of the 2018 Four Pillars Agreement and was progressed whilst the negotiations on the Pathway to Change Agreement were taking place. The first report/recommendations from the JWG formed part of Section 2.6 of the final Pathway to Change Agreement along with the commitment for their work to continue.


We have not had agreed productivity measures for many years and the work of the JWG has not only been excellent thus far but is also crucial to ensuring fair and manageable workloads for all – a fair day’s work for a fair day’s pay.
