Cwu Royal Mail Attendance Agreement

September 16, 2021 by gilsperling

Branches and members will know that we have defied the case to ensure that the attendance agreement is properly applied. Section 7 of the Four Pillar Agreement states that “both parties agree to conduct a joint review to improve the management of sick leave and improve the overall presence. This revision will build on and participate in the joint work already completed last year and address best practices in other sectors.¬†Answer: We would expect the vast majority of coronavirus absences to be excluded from the normal attendance procedure. However, in the event that coronavirus absences are in the wild for an excessive amount of time or repetition, further studies may be required. All applications should be addressed to the PTCS Division with the reference PTC/RE/sn/402. Email Address: khawkins@cwu.org All contacts must be agreed, including personal meetings. Under the agreement, personal meetings of states can take place on day 28, week 12 and week 22. There may be personal meetings outside of these periods, but these should be agreed upon and not “required” by the manager. We are in dialogue on the broader issues within the attendance agreement. We will present the themes collected in December to management in the coming weeks and will try to develop an action plan to ensure that the agreement is properly respected. In these cases too, a payment interruption should only be considered after the employee has been contacted and it has been possible to contact the manager about the contact strategy / note fit provided for in the agreement.

LtB 020/2019 provided a tripartite statement on the contact strategy that should have eliminated abuses in this section of the attendance agreement. Problems have also been reported with members who do not receive adequate rehabilitation upon return from a sick absence, and we have now agreed on a tripartite statement with Royal Mail and Unite/CMA. The Joint Declaration (annexed) reaffirms its commitment to the attendance agreement and focuses in particular on short-term changes and the gradual return to work, which are part of the assistance to members who need rehabilitation in the event of their return to the workplace. If there is a violation of the attendance agreement, representatives should challenge it immediately and aggravate the problem through the framework of the obtaining agreement if it cannot be resolved. We also discussed with Royal Mail the reduction of absences as part of the coronavirus attendance agreement. Royal Mail`s response to the coronavirus absence update is below. Are absences due to the coronavirus counted as part of the attendance procedure? The department wrote to Royal Mail on March 9 to discuss assurances about what will happen if members have to self-isolate due to the coronavirus. A response was received on March 12 and a meeting was held on March 13, 2020. Another discussion took place today. If members need to take a break to care for their loved ones, they can work on annual leave, unpaid free time or flexibility. These terms apply to all members of the Royal Mail Group, including members of the RMPFS.

Parcelforce has entered into similar agreements through a separate communication. While self-isolation advice will change regularly, we wanted to make sure that members are not placed in a position where they are faced with the decision to come to work and risk spreading the virus or getting the right medical advice and staying home…
