Revision activity and re-engagement in Parcelforce and other functions will be in line with the spirit and intent of this statement and will be subject to urgent separate discussion with the respective CWU national officers and Royal Mail functional directors.
All Collection revisions (planner led and unit led) will be in line with the RMG/CWU Joint Statement issued in April 2021 – The Agreed Approach to Managing the Changing Dynamics of Declining Letters and Growth in Parcels Within the Collection Function – copy attached An update on the approach to include workload in Delivery where postboxes have moved to Collection on Delivery (Annex A) The planning approach for revisions deployed and to be introduced adheres to the flightpath as set out in the Pathway to Change Joint Statement where a commitment was made not to go below 25,000 postboxes nationally retaining a 16:00 collection Monday to Friday in the second year (2022/23) All collection revision activity will ensure that all related people issues have been addressed and can be resolved as part of any deployment plans and where stranded hours remain, these are identified and actively resolved at the earliest opportunity, for example, through the allocation of other work which could be UTR/EMP, LAT or DPR work and other solutions considered reasonable For collection revisions already in progress but not deployed, and in line with the spirit of the recent joint statement, unit CWU representatives will reengage to validate, review, and seek to reach agreement on the revision. The outputs will not be restricted to managerial proposals and both parties commit to meaningful negotiations which secure an agreed deployment by the end of the financial year. Where agreement cannot be reached the terms of the overarching escalation process apply Both parties have agreed that the previous National Collections JWG structure will be reestablished to ensure future collection associated activity can be progressed jointly Any issues concerning the interpretation or application and deployment of the activity and these guidelines should be raised with the National Collections JWG who will provide support to help resolve any issues.
