POST OFFICE: 41 PROPOSED JOB LOSSES ACROSS ADMIN AND SUPPLY CHAIN – AGREED PREFERENCE EXERCISE
Further to LTB454/20 dated 16th September 2020.
Branches will be aware the Post Office announced earlier this week c.41 potential job losses amongst CWU Represented grades across a number of sites/locations in Admin and Supply Chain.
Following the first formal consultation meeting on Tuesday, we wrote to the Post Office seeking further clarification on various aspects of the proposals and also to provide management with feedback (received via our Reps and members) following the briefings to members on Wednesday morning.
A further meeting is being arranged to continue our negotiations; however to be clear, we have not agreed these proposed job losses. What has been agreed is the non-binding VR preference form in line with MtSF. The preference form is being provided to members in the affected areas from today and the closing date is Friday 2nd October. The agreed form and associated Joint Statement to support the preference exercise is attached to this LTB for your information.
Further information will be provided in due course. In the meantime, if members have any questions relating to the preference exercise, they are encouraged to contact their Representative in the first instance.
Andy Furey Assistant Secretary
