At our RDC colleagues in processing have been saying the 2nd hour of the SWW is being implemented in April 2019.
I was sure the reduction to a 37 hour week was planned for October 2019, as agreement. However has confusion arisen because transport/network changes will happen in April 2019 as indicated in the following paragraph
From 4 pillars Agreement;
The manner in which the SWW will be deployed for Network LGV Driver Grade will be the subject of detailed
discussions to ensure that the reduction or equivalent benefit is delivered in full. These discussions will consider
a full range of options which may include a review of non-driving time and current Meal Relief provision and
the restoration of payment for Meal Reliefs on a phased basis in accordance with the flight path to the 35 Hour
Working Week for OPG Grades. A final agreed position will be concluded and communicated by September 2018
including any proposed changes which will be incorporated in Network 2019 by April 2019.
