Excellent letter from Dave but unfortunately it will fall on deaf ears.

I take exception to being asked to use for own car at any point connected with the job.

Firstly, I am not insured.
Secondly, Why the hell should I? I don't get my fuel paid for!

Totally and utterly unacceptable!

This isn't allowed to happen. Whoever is asking you to do this should be for the high jump!

Contact your rep, you should still be paid - and I would turn up for work every day except your day off.

DOM sounds a right tosspot. He does have something for you, the floater vacancy else you shouldn't have someone transferring in.

Our managers use their cars to deliver walks when there is a staff shortage, I saw 2 managers go out yesterday each with a car full.

Isn’t that defeating the object. Plus unless they pay for work use on their own insurance policy, they aren’t covered.

Yes as long as the overnight retention policy has been followed including a risk assessment of the parking arrangements.

The irony of this is that some work vans are not fit for purpose. This is a major issue.

Do they have mail bags in the back ? Do they have insurance for work business cover? If not what does the managers above them say about it will they wash their hands of it if god forbid an accident/incident occurs? We can only guess about the implications of such as with the chief inspector of the police they must all go to the same masonic lodge we will never know!
