Not sure what the legal aspect of it is, if a postie who lives alone gets robbed and left tied up and gagged in the back of their van, when will he/she be missed if they are closing up before we are accounted for.

In our office it’s whoever is taking the live mail to the mail centre, as part of an S.A. duty.

I guess that’s fair enough if it’s part of a duty as s/a but otherwise it’s the usual add hoc wing and a prayer grey area debarkle!,once again

Same goes on here. On a busy Saturday, those who get back after the SA driver has gone put their live mail in the box outside the office and so it doesn’t go till the following monday. Managers know it’s happening but turn a blind eye.

Ahh the old turn a blind eye style of management,it’s priceless,makes you wonder why bother to scan and collect rural boxes,another tick box exercise,and they dare to preach about putting the customer first,it’s shameful,it’s all getting a tad silly now,inconsistency from office to office,as to what you can.and can’t have depending on how petrified your boss is to justify parting with money etc

It should be either the DOM and/or whoever is in the callers office. Years ago our office had a problem with this issue which could result in hurling post bikes over high walls or gates. Not an ideal situation or very amusing. I presumed this kind of thing didn't happen anymore but maybe as you are asking it is still happening. Heads need to roll methinks.

The problem with doing this is that RM employs people to post letters with microchips in them that register when they enter the mail centre. If they register later then the postie who should have got the mail back in time will be in trouble. In our DO either the DOM or callers office person collects the mail up that has missed the SA run and takes it to the MC on the way home. We only know about this because RM tried and failed to catch me out on it when the error was on their part and a system failure.

They are making the people scan the cod point when they get back off delivery and hand their mail in so they can see who’s back before the final scan of the cod point

They're RFID tags, if you look above whatever doors you use to bring in mail from the lorries coming from your local MC or mail going to your local MC you'll see the scanner

Phg staff at two. If you suspect you're gonna be late there's a key you can take which opens the gate and you leave your stuff in an out building. Ain't got a key and it's a case of leaving your van outside with your returns ect in the back. Not ideal, especially when it's happened before that people have left cars keys, house keys ect in the office.
