That would definetly work wonders in my office, the buckden boys/lass are unable to complete most days. We have day off working every week (amount of day off working does vary from week to week) so deliverys would be uncovered exposing staff shortages and RM inability to recruit enough staff.

May work in some offices but what about the non union members they would just be left to clear up. I my office we have somemany people on short contracts that need the overtime to survive. I can live on my 24 hour week - have you tried to live on £160. Most of the later joiners of RM are part-time and have never joind the union. Union rates are the only think in RM that are none prorata.

work to rule

06 Jun 2007, 20:14

the last i heard is was said to be estimated at around 65 to 70 % for a yes vote not too sure where they get the info from but lets hope it true or we are ALL SCREWED even the ones who voted no "you fools" how can anyone want to work longer in the winter and do extra walks for chuf all when someones sick or when they decide the mail is light and lets not forget about the door to doors which they want to increase but reduce payment for, being a postie is a job not a way of life we will proberly still be here in a few years , the ones who are shafting us will not be

work to rule should do for starters and total overtime ban as well :nana

RATS ABANDON SINKING SHIPS :no no

But surely they cant cover them all, and it may be possible to convince these ones why we are doing what we are doing and that if we stick together they have a better chance of getting better terms in the future.

Apparently it's against the law to bring them in,it's posted on the board somewhere.

In my office, union membership has shot up as no one wants these so called "strings" or to have to cross a picket line. United we stand, divided we fall.

United we are all left to come back on RM terms; they are likely to hold out and enforce other terms on a return to work. Remember Maggie and the goverment has mot changed since then - only the names in the frames.

We will not be backed by the public unless they understand that we are been asked to take a pay cut - rise less than inflation - people must leave and not be replaced therefore more work for everybody. Posties do a very labour instensive task and can't walk all day with heavy bags.

The office side of the job is deminishing so we have a dilema - it has to be more out there on the street walking/driving but lets split the rounds and share vans in pairs half a walk and half a van round (3.5 hr walk 2 hours parcels/businesses/farms/etc). This keeps our hours and makes it fair all round. Sorry to say but sod the time servered rules and lets all be fair, at the end of the day we are all posties.

I have to jump in.

Have some respect guys this is a serious forum about serious issues.









































OF COURSE YOU SHOULD DECORATE ON YOUR STRIKE DAY!! :crazy:

overtime is not guaranteed

06 Jun 2007, 23:24

overtime is not guaranteed when we start to work for royalmail we know what we are paid full time and part time in our office we had an overtime ban and we all stuck together and got through it, nobody is saying its forever ,we all have holidays or go on sick and we get by on a flat wage , we are doing this for a better future

united we stand divided we fall

06 Jun 2007, 23:50

Trouble with work to rule, is there anyone who knows what that is?
Trouble with Overtime ban is I don't do Overtime so I'll not get a chance at industrial action.

It's gotta be rolling one day stoppages.
or half days (that should bugger up the decorating also :wink:

Nothing' is guaranteed

07 Jun 2007, 00:01

Image Top post by MAGNUM. Nothin' is guaranteed. If [color=red] RM win this dispute the applecart get's tipped up and anything goes. The posties who rely on overtime are in for a BIGSHOCK-----------------a KWAK in time saves nineImagePS my colors are bust

A yes vote for us is a vote of no confidence for leighton and crozier. We must turn the yes votes into a call for their heads!!
