THE REVISED OFFER
STATEMENT FROM THE CWU
We want to start this update by thanking members and representatives for your support during what has been the most challenging period in the history of Royal Mail Group.
After reaching agreement with the employer, it became apparent that the local working environment would remain challenging without an immediate and visible shift in approach from the company at all levels.
On this basis we postponed the members vote on the national agreement to enable us to enter further discussions, covering:
- The crucial need to restore quality of service and USO compliance in every local office.
- To achieve the above the need for Royal Mail to work with the CWU and commence the process of reviewing failed revisions.
- The need for all delivery offices to have sight of their proposed start and finish times prior to the ballot.
Additionally, as previously explained, we have continued to explore the opportunity for an additional lump sum payment.
We are pleased to confirm progress has been made in all of these areas.
1. We have agreed a joint statement on section 2.5. A copy can be viewed here
The statement confirms the full restoration of the Industrial Relations Framework, a commitment to restore quality of service and USO compliance in every office and crucially – our reps are back at the negotiating table.
To support the roll out of the joint statement an online event will be held at 0800 on Wednesday 21st June for every CWU representative and operational manager in the UK. We will also hold a CWU National Briefing next week. Further details on this will be shared in due course.
2. We have clarified further the position on later starts and finishes with the employer.
This includes details on how we will work together to further mitigate the impact of these plans locally and nationally. This position and an online form to find out proposals for your office can be found here
Please take the time to read the joint statement on later starts prior to checking your office proposals
3. We have secured an additional lump sum payment of at least £900 which will be paid upon ratification of the agreement. This is in addition to the already agreed £500 lump sum and any back pay you will be due from the 6% pay award from April 2023.
Details of the payment and the background to it can be found here
On the basis of the above the Postal Executive have now agreed for the members ballot on the Business Recovery, Transformation and Growth Agreement to go ahead.
The revised timetable is as follows:
