Royal Mail and Communication Workers Union agreement

LinkedIn +

In a landmark deal agreed last week with the Communication Workers Union, Royal Mail has promised to try to reshape the company and its working practices without making compulsory redundancies. It is not confirmed how many jobs it intends to cut as a result of the modernisation agreement. The company employs nearly 193,000 staff across all its businesses, including the Post Office.

A CWU spokesperson said of the agreement: “It increases job security because of the assurances that we’ve got for the ratio of full-time to part-time and it allows the company to modernise and be more competitive.”

Many of the cuts are likely to happen as Royal Mail shuts mail centres across the country. The Crewe centre, employing 900 staff, is due to shut this summer and it is unclear how many staff will transfer to Warrington 20 miles away.

The union has agreed to changes in working practices, including introducing walk sequencing machines, to cut delivery preparation times and the abolition of short working days on Saturdays. Delivery staff will be entitled to more Saturdays off in return. All staff affected will receive pay rises adding up to 6.9 percent over the next three years and £400 once the union’s membership accepts the agreement. They will also receive £1,000 each after changes are carried out in their workplace. Further bonus payments are also payable.

  22. Great site you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked about here? I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get responses from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Many thanks!

I know my readers would enjoy your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e mail.

  24. Undeniably imagine that that you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be at the net the simplest factor to take note of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed at the same time as folks consider concerns that they just don’t recognize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing with no need side effect , folks can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  25. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  26. Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  27. Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Cheers
