my xmas doesn't revolve around the £200 they give me , its only used as an incentive so people don't go on sick in December anyway , oh and half of it was a payment of the colleage shares we all go stung on , let them keep it who gives a f**k.

I'm not fused about the Christmas bonus, one of my favourite times of year is December. Work is busy but the Christmas spirit still kicks in. I would like to keep the stamps though, all year I'm relieved that I just happen to have a stamp in a drawer somewhere.

It sounds like one of the things that they threw in the negotiations with the CWU like - monthly pay, no sick pay, no holidays, no paid breaks lol

Then they take it all back to make it look as though they have somehow negotiated and given us a good deal :crazy: :crazy:

I used to work NS, parcels etc, 20 hrs or thereabouts and when you got your payslip wondered if it was really worth the effort! I feel sorry for the AGs, no hope of FT contracts so are more or less coerced into starting earlier for peanuts.
I haven't worked any OT at Christmas for years and never will again.

For the record and for future reference and possible bollox from management, you do not lose any of the bonus when you are off sick during xmas pressure weeks unless you are on reduced pay.
This is how it stands NOW, obviously things MAY change if anything is about it in any new agreement we sign.

The Royal Mail pay directive states :

The directive authorises a one off Christmas supplement to operational and operational support employees in post on 29th November 2010 who complete the four week Christmas pressure period . The payment is a flat rate of £100 per person (paid pro-rata to part time employees and will be paid on Friday 17th December 2010. The payment is not consolidated , neither is it reckonable for overtime , allowances , SA , nor pension purposes. It is liable for tax and National insurance.

Part time employees are entitled to the Xmas supplement on a pro rata basis. They will receive the payment pro rata to a full time (Eg 40/39 5/39 hours ) week according to their contracted hours on the date payment is made. Part time employees that vary their contractual hours and work full time for a two week period during the Christmas pressure period will be paid the full Christmas supplement.

Eligibility for payment is linked to employment during the Christmas pressure period.

For each full week an individual receives no pay during the pressure period ( Eg unpaid special leave etc ) the individual will lose one quarter of the supplement.

For each full week where basic pay is reduced for sick pay pension rate the individual will lose one quarter of the supplement.

For each full week where basic pay is reduced for sick half pay the individual will lose one - eighth of the supplement

For each day counted midnight to midnight excluding bank holidays on which an employee takes unofficial industrial action their supplement will be abated by 10%
for official action it will be abated by 3%
