Royal Mail Outdoor & Indoor Conference Day 1
Royal Mail Outdoor & Indoor Conference.
16th June 2005
Pat O’Hara chaired this conference also.
This conference started at 14.00 & ended at 17.45.
The first three motions of this conference concerned Door 2 Door.
The first motion of the afternoon, motion 5.1 was not carried.
However Composite motion 5A & motion 5.6 were carried.
These motions sought out an increase in payment for D2D items, no agreement to increasing the current maximum items (except on certain criteria being fulfilled). & a new agreement on the delivery of D2D items to be finalised by the end of 2005.
Other motions carried concerned pouching off practices, pouch weights & various health & safety aspects / consequences of SDD.
Motions carried / accepted:-
Composite motion 5A, motion 5.6, emergency motion EM4 (concerning failure of Bognor Regis DO members not receiving £26.28 payment due to non implementation of SDD even though management have signed agreements in respect of SDD) 5.14, 5.15, Composite motion 5C, 5.20, 5.23, Composite motion 5D & motion 5.27.
Because of the carriage of emergency motion EM4 management (who were in attendance to this conference as observers) requested an immediate meeting with the union in regard to resolving this issue.
Possibly the best display of the power of unity I have seen to date.
Just goes to show what can be achieved by a show of solidarity. This is one of the best reasons for belonging to a union & as a rep it is great to see it in action.
One more day of conference to go.
To be one of the first to see my report of the last day of Annual conference 2005 go to our branch website, www.cwue5.org (which yet again failed to win any award in the annual branch website competition) and click on the conference blog.
