ROYAL MAIL: PATHWAY TO CHANGE AGREEMENT: DELIVERING THE SHORTER WORKING WEEK IN DOWNSTREAM ACCESS (DSACC)
I am pleased to advise Branches and our DSACC members that following discussions with management, an agreement has been reached with regards to delivering the Shorter Working Week from Monday 12th July. The following Joint Statement which outlines our agreement has been published today:
Royal Mail: Pathway to Change Agreement: Delivering the Shorter Working Week For Downstream Access
We are pleased to advise that an agreement has now been reached with regards to delivering the Shorter Working Week for Downstream Access.
Constructive dialogue between both parties has continued over recent weeks and we can now confirm that to achieve the 1 hour reduction in weekly working hours we will be reducing each shift by 12 minutes a day at the start of the shift. There will be an hourly rate pay increase to part time employees in lieu of the SWW.
The Shorter Working Week changes will be implemented from Monday 12th July, allowing time for the necessary changes to be made on PSP.
Both Royal Mail and the CWU acknowledge the way in which colleagues have responded to the unprecedented challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic and wish to thank you for your continued hard work.

CWU Assistant Secretary Network Access Operations Manager
The above is a positive outcome which I’m certain will be well received by our members working in the DSACC unit in Whitechapel.
