I thought D2D's were only delivered to residential addresses and not commercial premises? At least that's what we were once told.

Yep, or you can tell by the amount of each d2d you have. About 80 shops and offices on my walk so if I get 80 extra D2d's of 1 type I know they have to go everywhere. Dominoes pizza is 1 I get regularly, which is a bit embarrassing when I have to deliver one to another pizza chain on my walk.

Your weekly d2d control sheet will indicate opt outs, streets, residential, all delivery points etc. We get them for individual walk every Monday.

I want to transfer to your office. I'm lucky if I get my weekly sheet by Thursday, and more often than not on a Friday another set of d2ds with the mumbled phrase "there's these as well, filter the rest in next week will you Darwinsdad"

First step GP.
If GP agrees next step meeting with management.
Explain situation and ask for OHS referral.
If OHS agrees ask for suitable ring fenced duty.
After refusal get union involved.
After months of tea and biscuits and not much else return to step one and repeat.
After repeating 10 times take IHR.

Rep will push it at SI meeting for you. Took a while but that's a mangers job.
Second bit, rep asap on it. They are time paid for as in that week nothing more. Not even a reasonable instruction for end of week regularly.

It actually tells you on the label attached to the box whether they are residential or all addresses.
You know the label that tells you how much you are paid for that D2D contract. It always says 0.00p. So why do people think we still get paid for D2D?

The above been done. Not as bad as it used to be. Now it's a case of date sheet recieved and date lino informed of missing contracts entered in comments box at the bottom by me. Any extras for that week left over. Lino/managers problem after that.

Thanks, it's a niggling knee pain I can feel when doing a town/walking delivery but is fine on rurals.
Will see to getting it looked at.

I've been to my gp this week and have been given a referral for physio.

Anyone else been down this route with knee issues?
