I worked for RM for a good few years,and had never known morale in our office to be so low in the time before I left. I can remember going into work and the atmosphere amongst the workers was so good,there was a lot of light hearted banter,and you could tell most of the posties loved being there and enjoyed their job.What a change it is now,and for the worse.How can you possibly get the best out of the workers when most are treated and spoken to so appallingly,unless of course you are one of the favourites,who get whatever they want.
I have known cases where posties have genuinely been off on the sick,perhaps quite poorly and with something contagious and bosses have rang them telling them to come into work! You couldnt make it up,then its spread round and more go sick! Just more bullying tactics!
I am so glad that I was able to get out when I did,though it still leaves a nasty taste in my mouth how I was made to hate the job I loved for so many years by the appalling way I was treated by the managers.
I really feel for you posties,good luck and hope one day you will be appreciated for the hard job you do
