Letter to show the 'authorities'

26 Mar 2020, 00:02

Anyone been given the letter to show the police/army that we are key workers and need to be out and about? I'm guessing this is the same thing like the 'permit' they are using in Italy and France.

Yes, but it is a letter rather than a permit. It confirms to anyone who reads it that postal workers have been classed as keyworkers, remember without your photo id security pass, it is merely a piece of paper.

Where has it been designated that we are 'key workers' anyway?
And I thought the designation of key workers was to allow the provision of education and childcare of that section of the community so the workers did not have to take time off work to look after their children.
I'm not aware that it was to enable companies to flaunt the rules on whether they should be closed or not.

Workers in the postal industry have been officially classed as key workers. Along with other delivery workers.

But the key worker list is for the provision of education and childcare
https://www.gov.uk/government/publicati ... -provision

And in Scotland the detailed definition of key workers has been devolved to local authorities with an initial list provided by the Scottish Government, and makes no mention of postal workers.

And their definition appears to exclude all delivery workers, so they better all stay at home.

If I get a letter from the Government (both UK and Scottish) telling me my job is essential for the health and welfare of the nation, fair enough.
But a letter from Royal Mail doesn't cut it in times like these.
And I'm not still working, I'm on holiday, due to go back next week.

I don't think any of us have (officially) yet......we might get them by Christmas based on the performance of management in this crisis so far, but
on the other hand if it's needed for us to be able to deliver pointless D2D leaflet's they'll get them sent pretty quickly.......

Will this exempt us from any fines out of work hours? I have been staying at my girlfriends house 40 miles away for last 6 months but worried about getting stopped on the way home as its an hours drive? If not ill have to go back to my house which is near the office.
