Managers: Are actually quite decent but have all kinds of deals on to satisfy everyone. OT is paid 99% of the time. 40% of hours in our office are done on OT so they know if they don’t pay it everything will collapse.
There’s a few tiers of staff:
Tier 1: Those nearing retirement are on ‘easier’ trolley duties and are back by 1pm on a bad day (still getting paid till 3). They aren’t challenged or sent back out because they are the first to walk or go sick.
Tier 2: Full timers doing single van duties or what were park and loops. Happy as long as their hours are the same and they aren’t told to do extrat. Some using their cars. A decent bunch but prone to doing whatever they can to get done 5mins earlier - if for example they have a tricky parcel, they’ll hide it on one of the yorks of the Tier 3 staff (see below)...that’s not hearsay btw.
Tier 3: PT time staff put on the 1pm till 6pm shift. Most are looking for another job. Put on walks blind, often get to their york to find a tricky tracked parcel for the round next door on their york- tracked must go so they have to deliver. Rarely kept in the loop with new working practices. If lucky to be in on a morning often expected to be using cars. Refuse to educate themselves on rules about being sent to other offices (eg start and finish at your own DO, insist on being given transport).
None of the 3 tiers will ever support each other.
Union Rep: no idea, not seen him since the gate meetings late last year.

No overtime available on Saturdays & Mondays so RM is effectively condoning ' modern day slavery '.
No good points about these new measures or any benefits for the workforce or the customers.
P***** off about being ' selected ' to start later and finish later every day.
Please can you explain your "modern slavery" and "selected to start later and finish later" comments?
Also strange that you think that social distancing is of no benefit to the workforce or customer

Taking less than wat they should by saying they'll struggle and fire extra onto others and then hiding on their walks to get their day in. Each to their own I suppose but the sickening thing is that its the same people that are shafting others daily. Even on the light days. Yes it's down to management not stopping it but at the end of the day you would expect everyone to stand together in these unprecedented times. You are basically going out on delivery in a bad mood every day. It's so disheartening
