Hello guys...just need some advice...unfortunately I have the big C and undergoing treatment/meds/care for it...duty got ring fenced which was fine at the time...now there are new builds on the horizon so where do I stand?(hundreds)
I can just about complete my duty now...and I am physically spent by the end of it each day...runners who do mine race round and can get done earlier than me(both healthy and younger than myself) ...something my line manager likes to remind me now and again...but going back to new builds/ring fenced duties who do I turn to for help?
Haven't much faith in my local reps tho as they tend to favour managers opinions more than mine at times!
Also having trouble coping with sorting/indoor work...especially when I have 4/ 5/6 or 7 lots of door to doors...line manager just doesn't give me any slack to prep them...other posties with equally serious health issues are spared sorting and are allowed to work at a comfortable pace without the stress I work under ...which beggars the question why not me too?(Equality issue)?

You need to put in writing that you need a further reasonable adjustment as your current one is not suitable, you would be better getting your equality officer from your local branch to assist your request or even the health and safety area rep, Royal Fail has a duty of care towards you and a duty to make reasonable adjustments and constantly adjust them if necessary.
