How do they get away with telling staff that they have kept to agreements with the CWU when they won't even honour the legal and binding agreement of the shorter working week? How would the business suddenly be loss-making?


Oh I get it....they plan to spend billions on these parcel hubs rather than invest in us with the SWW. Keep banging the drum that mail volumes have fallen since 2004 to justify transformation

Still no figure as to how much parcel volumes have risen since 2004

If/when the talks eventually get underway again and there will be give and take from both sides, then the imo the cwu should insist on time and a half for overtime. We are talking £7odd per hour for overtime after tax and ni as it stands now. Lets get real and get focused.

when he says larger parcels, I have heard that before with the LAT, but he says next day items as well, could this be all specials off delivery then? that would enable much larger rounds as well as being more consistent times, not cutting off to get there for 1 pm, any ideas?

Bollarks as LAT duties only go after 1pm specials even so how can one deliver a time slot if the staffing is not on duties.

I believe guys that the idea is to ditch the before 1pm thing for specials and it will just be next day guaranteed . :hmmmm

Tracked and SDs essentially combined into one product but with the "premium version" (higher compensation) done in SD lockers?

Maybe something like DPD do with a 1 hour delivery slot.

I honestly think that would be a good idea. Our customers don't seem to care that its before 1pm or not. Most people aren't in anyway and those that are waiting in would appreciate it to be more like 9/10am guaranteed so they could get on with their days. Which we already have a product for. I think most people get the 1pm's for the extra cover that comes with it and are happy to collect it the next day having missed it. The faff it creates having to cut off and do one letter at 1pm when our last letter times are only an hour later!

Do away with it. Offer next day guaranteed with in flight redirection and tracking like our competitors do. Considering that MUST be an ambition of RM the only logical conclusion is that specials and tracked will be handed to dedicated packet drivers as those products would be too unreliable with an on foot letters and small packets postie.

Many of our competitors offer give time slots/estimates and you can also see where the driver is on a map once they're within a certain number of deliveries before your own

Yup, Had that with DPD. Very good. Something RM would be mad not to replicate.

last letter times is not 2 pm -----We aim to make one delivery every day, Monday to Saturday. These are scheduled to be completed: Addresses in urban areas - by 3pm. Addresses in rural areas - by 4pm (subject to exceptions for remote areas with limited transport infrastructure such as the Highlands and Islands)

thing with specials is most I have done they just want the higher insurance, not bothered when it gets there, some do I know, I have heard them say about LAT s before but they have started to mention next day delivery items as now, they mentioned it in the courier [ yes I read it, you have to know your enemy] but I haven't heard what he means by next day delivery items, yet.

Firms collections & collections from post offices cannot be added to delivery walks but postbox collections could be added to them. Some posties would lose their collection duties but it would provide a saving to RM and be far less destructive than the new parcel strategy which will effectively wreck our jobs.

either that or they want to be able to track their item through the system. If RM made Tracked available to everyone then I reckon the amount of SDs going through the system would really drop.

I can understand the reasoning behind the customs charge foreign items going via the SD system but what's the reasoning behind the other foreign stuff that goes through the SD system - why doesn't it go through the system as Tracked?
