Your union rep should know the next six monthly review is in September. However the increase in hours for part-timers was due with immediate effect at MC's & RDC's, in line with the four pillars agreement, following a review audit.
A previous post on the subject;
I have posted this before, But 3 months has passed since the agreement & it does not appear any "immediate" action has been applied as indicated.
FOUR PILLARS OF SECURITY AND PAY NATIONAL AGREEMENT
8. Resourcing in line with current agreements (EDITED points)
Both parties will re-affirm they will deploy legally binding commitments to part- time workers and the
use of agency workers.
In respect of part-time worker the following will apply with immediate effect.
It is apparent that while some colleagues have secured additional conditioned hours and also converted
to full- time there is more that can be done to reflect a part-time workers commitment to additional
hours (should they wish it.) This means, in line with our agreements, and where justified, we should
focus on moving to full time or increasing contractual hours, below full-time, either on a temporary or permanent variation of contract.
....Agreed that their is not and will not be a central HR policy to only recruit on a part-time basis.Recruitment determined by workload and the outcome of the weekly resource meetings, initiated 13 weeks out.
Notwithstanding our immediate activity we will develop a means to confirm that effective weekly
resourcing meetings are taking place. This will include 6 monthly reviews to of part-time employees
and regular use of agency workers to ensure use of this resource is being used in line with our
16.2.1 Processing (Mail Centres & RDCs) Joint activity to deliver the 1st hour of the SWW (Edit)
As defined in the resourcing section of this document both parties recognise that in some locations
resourcing arrangements are currently inconsistent with the standards defined in the agenda for growth
and job security agreements, with regard to the resourcing mix. It is a joint aspiration to reduce the
number of Agency/Casual workers within our facilities and to enable this, a joint audit will take place
at each mail centre/RDC to establish the current resourcing mix. This audit will review the current year
round levels of current agency/casual usage at each site and examine the root cause of use and agree
alternative permanent employee resourcing options.
