We are aware that our proposals will be difficult to obtain. As with all negotiations, Royal Mail will want to advance its own agenda, but useful discussions can only continue (and a new comprehensive agreement can only be reached with the CWU) if the company is seriously prepared to negotiate our four main priorities. A contract requires these parties to participate in a legally binding agreement that would have legal relationships and should understand that it can be enforced by law. Any contract that violates the law is non-applicable and unenforceable. In addition, a contract must not be contrary to public order and must not be executed in the context of illegal activity. Relations between Royal Mail and the union have deteriorated amid disagreements over the implementation of the four-pillar agreement reached between the two sides last year. The CWU said royal Mail is not complying with an agreement reached last year that covers a wide range of topics, including plans to reduce weekly working hours and job security. The union stated that a culture of harassment in the workplace had not been addressed since the agreement, as local CWU officers had been disciplined. The landmark Agenda for Growth Agreement provided members with a number of important safeguards for the future of the company, job security, redevelopment and EU recognition, all through legal protection and collective agreements based on “consensual change” and a culture of “mutual interest.” An individual will run into different contracts and sign them, such as. B an agreement for the purchase of a house or a car. But have you ever thought about what this legal document is about and what it really asks of you? Or do you really know what important elements a contract must have to make it valid and applicable? Before signing a contract, you are familiar with the four elements of a legal contract: it has been less than two years since a new agreement was reached after a resounding “yes” from the members of the Communication Workers Union (CWU).
The agreement, dubbed the Four Pillars of Security and Pay National Agreement, was designed to address the fear that both Royal Mail and its employees are feeling as they wait for future challenges in the sector. The objective of the dispute is to reach an agreement that is not necessarily a strike action. To reach this agreement, massive membership participation will be required. The goal is to get as much yes as possible, which means securing a better future. Negotiators agreed. It will be presented to the management of the post office on January 30 and 31, 2018. If there is an agreement, it will be a full vote to all CWU members in the Royal Mail Group. Thank you for all your incredible support. In addition, as Terry Pullinger (DGSP) explains, the employer is committed to chasing harassment and harassment of management in the workplace. It will not happen overnight – will be a common approach. It will take time because we think that some managers are unable to change. That is, if you are aware of harassment and harassment, or are ultimately in your workplace, it must be called into question either by yourself or by the use of your local agents.
We will see how attached the employer is to this element of the agreement when issues are raised. The four security pillars of the CWU are the key measures needed to protect future membership jobs, living standards and retirement security in a context of increased competition and a hostile regulatory and political environment.
