Motion 49

Conference notes with concern the attack being made by employers on workers' final salary pension funds. Conference therefore agrees that if Royal Mail Group attempt to worsen the conditions and the benefits of the current pension schemes for existing or future members then this will be opposed by all means possible including consideration of national rule 13 (Industrial Action Ballot).

e5.

11. Conference recognises that Royal Mail’s plans for the future represent the biggest attack on terms and conditions ever.

In addition conference condemns Royal Mail’s current policy of refusing to pay for change.

Conference therefore calls on the PEC to ballot the membership under Rule 13 in order to force Royal Mail to address the policies which the Union has on pay, working time and family friendly matters.

The Postal Executive is instructed accordingly.

12. Conference applauds the Recognition Agreement between CWU and Capita. Conference further notes with concern that the first pay agreement since the recognition agreement did not achieve parity in the pay settlement between the TUPE members and Capita Contract members due to the stance taken by Capita in those negotiations.

The Postal Executive is instructed to mount a campaign that will culminate in an equal settlement for all Capita members, irrespective of contract, in the 2007 pay negotiations due in October.

The campaign will take the form of an immediate, comprehensive recruitment and information campaign amongst all Capita Contract non members, particularly in Darwen and in the Field Force. This campaign will highlight the vast differences in TUPE terms and conditions compared with the exploitative Capita Contract terms and conditions and the fact that this will only change if they join the union and are prepared to support Industrial Action to improve their terms and conditions.

Failure to achieve parity in the 2007 pay settlement will result in a ballot for Industrial Action of all Capita TVL members.

The Postal Executive is instructed accordingly.

13. Conference agrees that the principle of consolidation to enhance basic pensionable pay remains our priority. Therefore the CWU will use every means at our disposal to ensure that any productivity payments/phantom shares are consolidated into basic pensionable pay.

The Postal Executive is instructed accordingly.

15. Conference instructs the incoming Postal Executive that agreement is reached with the employer for an assimilated pay scale that flows through from the minimum CSA rate to the maximum Postal Officer rate as has been agreed in S&CS.

Furthermore, inferior terms and conditions that affect the entire CSA grade such as, Saturday Premium payments and sick pay during the first year of service, be addressed as a priority.

The Postal Executive is instructed accordingly.

London North Western C&C

16. Conference agrees that the previous Efficiency, Approach to Pay 2006 Agreement establishes a number of sound principles with regard to our future pay policy. It is further noted by this Conference that there has been problems in keeping a robust audit on the savings made. Therefore any future scheme/agreement that the national union secures with Royal Mail that captures savings from change that goes towards a national scheme to uplift basic pay. At the commencement of that scheme then the CWU will establish its own process, independent of the employer where Branches will forward savings made to a central CWU point. The union will then establish a process of recording and auditing those savings.

The Postal Executive is instructed accordingly.

Eastern No.4

18. Conference instructs the incoming Postal Executive that Conference deplores the imposition of the pay 2006 pay rise on P&ODS without agreement. It is therefore essential to ensure that in the event of a further pay imposition, that members in P&ODS will be balloted on whether they agree with the pay rise/deal or not, If necessary a consultative ballot on pay will be held, similar to the consultative ballot held in P.O.L. on pay in 2006.

The Postal Executive is instructed accordingly.

South Yorks & District Amal

19. Conference agrees that the efficiency agreement has not returned the monetary gains that it should have. Therefore this conference instructs the incoming PEC that if it negotiates a further efficiency agreement then it’s main tenet shall be that it will be based on overall cash unit savings rather than just hours saved. This will harmonise any efficiency agreement with the other functions within Royal Mail.

The Postal Executive is instructed accordingly.

Motion 7

Conference agrees that we now need to build on this agreement and ensure that milestones are built in at various stages of the introduction of walk sequencing machines/new technology or any savings that can be identified from Royal Mails letter strategy.

The PEC are instructed to negotiate an agreement that will identify savings from the introduction of walk sequencing machines year by year until full introduction of them, that will ensure our basic pay catches, matches and overtakes the national average basic pay.

The formula for savings would be a simple comparator of the previous years costs of areas that have had new technology introduced or effiency changes introduced that have decreased business costs from the previous year.

This agreement will ensure that the following are achieved over the same time period

Reduction in the working week,

Maximise full time working with new inovative ideas.

Ensure that members are motivated and fully trained on the duties that they perform.

Increased annual leave and more flexibility around being able to take annual leave.

The Postal Executive is instructed accordingly.

yup thats my 'never to be award winning' website.

I'm not much on the design (I've no coding knowladge, it's all done on frontpage) but I'm a big believer in keeping the membership informed & I've loads of ideas.

I suppose you could argue that we are free of any constraints HQ may have?

Anyway, looks like I'll be back at Conference next year. Simon Massen has been elected back to the postal SOC so I'll be in charge of the delegation again....roll on 2008. :dance

38. Conference agrees that Royal Mail is seeking to implement a new delivery structure model by stealth, which includes later starts that do not attract either of the early shift allowances, and this approach must be resisted. Conference agrees that if Royal Mail does wish to introduce a new delivery model then this must be subject to national negotiations and a national agreement. Conference further agrees that any such agreement must ensure that if delivery attendance times are significantly altered that the current early shift allowance is protected on permanent basis by incorporation into basic pay for delivery members.
