@royalmailnews : We have shared more detail with CWU on our three year pay proposal

21 Feb 2020, 13:44



Shane O’Riordain, Managing Director of Regulation, Corporate Affairs and Marketing, Royal Mail said:

Royal Mail has today put forward a proposal to CWU. It includes a six per cent three-year pay deal for our CWU-grade people. This means an increase, including the first hour of the shorter working week, of more than 16 per cent between 1 April 2018 and 31 March 2023.

We have said that we can only afford to do this if we deliver on the Plan we announced to our stakeholders in May 2019. To do this, we need to change more quickly than before.

Our proposal underlines our commitment to being the best employer in our industry. It maintains our policy of no compulsory redundancies for frontline operational colleagues. We will not become a gig economy employer. We will not introduce zero hours contracts for permanent employees. Nor would we look to outsource Royal Mail’s core operations.

We want to invest £1.8 billion in the UK. We need to turnaround and grow our UK business. This means the further automation of parcels, including the deployment of three new automated parcel hubs. Most of our parcels are currently hand sorted, just as they were in the Victorian period.

We will introduce a second van delivery in most parts of the country. This is about capitalising on the growth of “night owl” shopping. We will do this by introducing around 7,000 dedicated van delivery routes from c300 delivery offices by 2023. Delivery of letters and small parcels will remain unchanged through our existing Delivery Office network

UK letter volumes are expected to decline by 75 per cent in the 2004 – 2024 period. So, over the next four years, we plan to carefully reduce the number of daily walks from c58,000 to c50,000. Alongside this, we want to invest in the upgrading of the infrastructure that delivers the Universal Service. This means £115 million invested in upgrading our facilities, and £400 million in new vehicles to improve the fleet.

Our plan is about a modern, contemporary Universal Service. It is about what our customers want. It is about ensuring we remain the best employer in our industry. We hope to convince the union to support us to grow Royal Mail.

We didn't get a pay rise in 2017 - so it's also 16 per cent between 1 April 2017 and March 2023. Selective truth.

It's not even close to that for a full-timer.
Throwing in the SWW completely ignores the fact that the SWW didn't increase my take home pay at all.

“best employer in the industry “ Says the employer that breaks agreements and fights their staff in the courtroom

I like the fact that they are making out that they have offered us a 16% pay deal to resolve the dispute. Regardless of the fact any pay increase we had was due to past agreements. Which they are now selectively ignoring. Royal Mail seem to be embracing Trumps "Fake News" doctrine.

The union comms team need to make it very clear that we have not been offered 16% at all. That 16% figure is directed at Joe public to make us posties seem like unreasonable greedy sods!

Exactly Smudge - I have posted the same previously.

The actual pay rises implemented;

April 2017 would normally be the point for the pay review.
In May 2018 the 5% pay increase was awarded & backdated to October 2017.
In October 2018 the first hour was implemented which was effectively a 2.6% increase to the hourly rate.
In April 2019 the 2% pay increase was awarded.

So my calculation is a 9.6% increase over 3 years.

Read between the lines of the colleague update and you can see all the stuff Martin Walsh as told us about.
We don't want a pay rise or the SWW - we want you to run the business in a competent fashion and to keep our jobs.
The most efficient way to deliver is once across the ground which is what we currently do.

I definitely want a pay rise as inflation will make us poorer else. I would also quite like that hour for the sww with an aim to get to 35 hours. As was promised. That should be the goal. Our job is hard physical labour and anytime not spent labouring is a good thing.

"The most efficient way to deliver is once across the ground which is what we currently do"

That I want to agree with but we will have to wait and see if that is true. They are trialing the separation of packets after all.

Both sides must be honest.
