RMPFSL – Dispute on Pay and Associated Issues

No. 459/22
21st November 2022

Dear Colleagues,

Royal Mail Property & Facilities Solutions Limited (RMPFSL) Dispute on Pay and Associated Issues

Further to the formal rejection of RMPFSL’s full and final offer which was shared in LTB 343/2022, in the absence of any further negotiations, we have served notice today for strike action for all our members in RMPFSL for the following:-

All duties which start at or after 04.00 hrs on Monday 5th December 2022 and before 04.00 hrs Tuesday 6th December 2022.

We have made it clear in our correspondence and conversations with RMPFSL we are prepared to meet to secure an agreement, however, up until this point, the company have not taken up this offer.

Unfortunately, RMPFSL have gone backwards on the previous positions they have outlined within our negotiations and have labelled this position as their ‘full and final offer’. This offer is not good enough or acceptable and as RMPFSL do not want to negotiate, therefore after consultation with our Representatives in PFSL we have no other option and have named the strike action for 5th December 2022.

RMPFSL have the opportunity to avoid this strike action, by negotiating an agreement acceptable to the Union.

We will be communicating further with our Reps, Branches and Members to ensure everyone is fully prepared for the strike action on 5th December.

Any queries regarding the content of this LTB should be addressed to the PTCS Department quoting reference number 312 – email snicholas@cwu.org or the Outdoor Department, quoting reference 120.12 email address: njones@cwu.org

Yours sincerely,

Carl MadenCWU Assistant Secretary
