The way forward is not putting in a grievance or ringing the bullying hotline though. The way forward is for the CWU to use its might and funds to build a thorough dossier of evidence on these scumbags. Then employ the services of a Barrister to sue these people individually one by one in the civil courts. For their houses, their cars, compensation for their victims and even the hand made shirts off their back. After 30 or 40 of these people have publicly been through the courts, the rest, who only think of money and their career prospects, may well recalibrate their behaviour.

christiani wrote:Well, I’ve had a week to forget. It started with a snide remark from a manager when a few of us were chatting and joking a bit “Well, I think we all know who the most lazy person in this office is”. I was completely oblivious that he might have been talking about me. I don’t know if he was, but my paranoia radar is on slightly.
I was then given, and not for the first time, far too much to try to deliver. I went out, then brought back what I couldn’t deliver. I told my manager for the day (a different one from the one above), who asked what I’d left. I sent him a picture, and his reaction was “wow” to begin with. Next thing I know, the first manager I mentioned texted me asking what I’d left. I told him, then he replied “I’ll talk to you about it in the morning”. I replied saying “What is there to talk about?”. I didn’t receive an answer after that. The following day, he made no attempt to speak with me. While on my round, I texted him asking if we could chat over the phone or when I got back to the office. No reply. I ended up texting the 2nd guy about the situation, asking what was going on. He said that the other manager had been busy delivering a parcel with him (yes, these managers go out and deliver mail EVERY DAY, just to clear as much as they can!). I felt like saying “It must have been a massive parcel, of it’s kept him from texting me back from last night until now!”.
I went back to the office at the end of my shift, and they were in the office. I said hi, and they said hi back. That was it. Nothing more said by them. It was as though nothing had been happening. I walked out of the office, but walked back in to talk about the situation. They just sat there, looking away from me, ignoring me, until I broke the ice and said hi again. I asked if they wanted to talk about the situation now or in the morning. They said “it’s been a long day. Tomorrow”.
I requested that a union rep be present when we chatted. We chatted today with the union rep present, and the manager said he thought I could have delivered more during my hours. I told him that that wasn’t true, and that it takes as long as it takes. He wouldn’t budge. It was insulting. I’ve worked, on and off, for 2 months shy of 5 years as a postman, and I’m usually one of, if not the fastest, in the office, but here I was being told by this guy that I wasn’t working hard enough. I’ve worked in a number of offices as well, and am not slow, lazy, or incapable of doing the job. He said that he knows people in the office who can deliver the mail he gives me, and that he can do it, too, and that he can't just say to his boss "I'm sorry it wasn't all delivered, but sometimes it takes longer than at other times" if the mail isn't all delivered.
Rant over. The guy is a gold-plated pr*ck, who’s left me stressed out and wanting to avoid him until I leave the company, which will hopefully be soon :/

DOM - “your not due out till 10 30 it’s a bit early telling me now come back when your about to go out we will access the situation then”
10 15 am Postie - “Boss still won’t be able to finish in time to much on won’t be able to do tracked or packets”
DOM - “it’s a bit late telling me now pal I have nobody and I mean nobody to cover anything on your duty, tell you what leave the packets just take the tracked”
Postie - “I’m not going over boss”
DOM “come and see me in the morning and I will pay you what you went over” Walks away!
DOM comes back "if your telling me you can't finish those two walks and the tracked and the mail traffic is down today well I will be speaking to you tomorrow on a performance issue"
Postie looks for Union rep, Union rep has been in early and long gone.
