REFUSE point blank, if they decide to move you they apparently they have to give you 4 weeks notice, quite frankly there in the shite and there using this threat to get you to agree, stick to your guns if everybody refuses what they going to do then.

If RM haven't got enough vans then isn't the only alternative to work afternoons, having to wait for a van to arrive back?

Yes, but child care issues will be taken into consideration. If he can't do it they have to consider that.

Well, not "delivering the Post" They don't appear to care about that at all.Tracked, packets n parcels. So many people need their plastic eyelashes, wigs and eco friendly dishwasher tablets now.

Funny how offices are so different. I refused and was def in the minority. Most people at our gaff happy to van share, including people who had previously had covid or were off due to be being high-risk and told to shield.

What alternatives would there be? Only two I can think of is the callers office (possibly with the same childcare issues) or being shipped off to the local MC
