My take on this for what it is worth is........ So, we all get paid the same rate of pay for doing the job that we do. Everyone. In every workplace we see different personalities with different values and ethics. We see these who want to show how quickly they can complete. We see those who are polar opposites who are happy to plod along hoping for either help to complete or o/t for being unable to complete. The structure and model (and I can only speak for Delivery) is such that indolence and inefficiency seem to be rewarded and anyone who is dilligent feels aggrieved at the way it is structured. The standards expected are never enforced and at the end of the day it all comes down to money. I don't particularly hate anyone in my DO but it is impossible not to resent those who are doing less work but being paid the same wage.

Before we moved they protested wrongly of course that we would reduce or effect their overtime but we are completely separate in duties and hours allocated. Several of us have tried the hello how’s things, looks like rain and are you on leave soon but no replies. One of my colleagues complained to a manager that people were ignoring him but was advised you cant make someone talk to you if they don’t want to. The word hate never came into the equation for us, I’m happy just to go in do my job and get out, strange thing is I have bumped into a few staff in pub or shopping and they nod or even say hi :shock:

wouldnt even waste ye breath on them bunch of t@@@@@ :cuppa

there was a lad who used to live a few doors away from me who worked as a driver at ours, used to be a miner. his dad was one to, and he worked during the strike in the mid 80s. so he never spoke to his dad again. his dad died only only a few months back. he went to the funeral but they still not speaking right up until his death. what a sad state of affairs to be in. life is too short.

i work in an amalgamated unit. i've worked on a sector within it where only 4 out of like 20 posties actually talk.

that being said, one of this sector's ranks changed walks when the resign happened. now i get complaints from posties i used to work with saying 'theyre so hard to work with, they dont even say hi when you say it to them'

makes you think.

i just kill 'em with kindness personally.

That's because most of them are bellends.

Royal Mail is the antithesis of a meritocracy, the cream does not rise to the top, it curdles, smells a bit and becomes sour.
