Royal Mail Business Transformation Agreement

A Positive Future for Royal Mail
In the current financial climate, many workers - particularly in the public sector - are facing pay freezes, compulsory redundancies and even, in the case of Unite members at British Airways, the prospect of pay cuts, we feel that the proposed deal for our Royal Mail members compares extremely well.

Below are the key points of the draft new national agreement Business Transformation - 2010 and Beyond - which has been negotiated with Royal Mail and endorsed by the CWU postal executive.

Between now and 2012
- Basic pay will rise by a minimum of 6.9 per cent
- Further payments will accompany the phased introduction of change in the workplace
- The CWU will play a full part in the introduction, deployment and review of change
- The working week will reduce by one hour with no loss of pay
- Royal Mail will remain a 75 per cent full-time industry
- Existing job security will be further enhanced
An "over-arching aim" will be to achieve this transformation with no compulsory redundancies
