I hope you wont be the 1 in 6 to lose your job , why is it stressful for drivers ? im the only driver in our p&l and we get s**t loads of pkts and parcels on our deliverys everyday but we load the lwts up and off we pop as its called working together , and I can count on 1 hand the amount I deliver out the back of the van everyday . have another look at your pkts , parcels the ones that are over shoe box size so by just removing them that wouldn't allow you to get another 200+ calls inc small pkts , parcels . on your walk , well it wouldn't on our delivery .

If you do some basic number crunching removing 1 in 6 duties gives a P&L pair 40% of a delivery.
40% of a 4hr delivery is 1hr 36 minutes without even factoring in any possible extra traveling time....and that's based on a 4hr delivery, many offices have far longer than that.

I think on a bad day oversized packets might put 20 minutes on our delivery but most days since we're driving past most of them it's insignificant.

I think closer to 1 in 10 would be more realistic but you can guess what they'll push for.

Really sounds like you need to rethink how you work. Don’t tell me one of you delivers all the large parcels whilst the other delivers all the mail

Me and my partner did pretty much this the other day. We were swamped and we were out a good 30/45 mins later than normal. He was happy to do the biggies as OT so we focused solely on our bags. We finished pretty much exactly on time. Given there will be a slight saving on sorting time for the packets or an extra person on IPS perhaps and what ever else they have planned to save indoor time. Then I would say they are on to something. If it was a normal day we would have finished a fair bit earlier doing what we did. I can assure you I am no runner either. Obviously they will trial it but I can see it being successful.

Please don't jump down my throat as I certainly don't want to indorse it or see any job losses but we definitely need to be honest with ourselves. I was skeptical about it being possible when we first heard about it but based on my experience the other day I think it is achievable. :shock:

We did after all accept to trial new delivery methods in the new pay agreement. The union should work with RM on this one to mitigate job losses instead of fighting it. We wouldn't win. They would take us to tribunal where we would lose as we agreed to this.

I did oversize parcels as my duty over Christmas. In 4 hours I did approx 100-120 parcels. That’s a lot to have on your walk! Lol

we use to have parcel drivers that took the large parcels off you for delivery then they scrapped that :Applause , and you take everything ,take away your large parcels and you just look at the amount of small pkts that you have to scan and knock for , this company just goes round in circles with all these great plans :crazy: , we all know that this will never work but never mind we still have a finish time ,

Why do i get the feeling that for deliveries it'll be either this or RM have all DOs starting and finishing later and doing LAT stuff as part of normal duties

RM might do it anyway to save on shift allowance money. Also depending on what happens with Network 19 (no idea what's proposed for that) then you might end up with later start and finish times no matter what

An oversized parcel is not the same as a parcel that won't fit through a letterbox. :cuppa
