Can any confirm or deny that the FTDB is written into the Parcelforce contract please,,
Does any Ops Manager have the authority to stop paying this FTDB on a whim?.
As I see it,,the FTDB is exactly what it says,,but due to pressure of work ,it is clearly impossible for a route driver to clear his route on a daily basis,so the ops manager feels its ok to stop paying the bonus to EVERYONE simply because of the sheer volume of work and the unachievable work loads make it impossible to clear the route.
The routes have targets,,so if every driver hits his delivery target,regardless of the workload on his route,which requires him to leave work off,,he is still hitting his tgarget and clearing his route..but the ops manager thinks different,,if the route has a target od 117,,and over 200 items come in for that route,,then clearly that is an unachievable workload work load but the driver is still clearing his targeted route..Is the Ops manager within his rights to withhold the FTDB and has done for 6 months,or will this require action on the part of the union>?
