Modified tropical wet weather gear trial

CWU members at Mansfield and Nambour facilities reported some concerns with the new tropical range of wet weather gear supplied by Dririder.

Dririder representatives attended the facilities and discussed the concerns directly with the delivery workers. During those discussions, workers suggested a number of modifications that may improve the performance of the tropical range of garments.

Subsequently, these modifications have been incorporated into a number of samples that will be sent to outdoor postal delivery workers at these facilities for trial.

The modified garments are expected to arrive at the facilities in early September. As much of Queensland is in a drought the assessment will continue until sufficient wet weather exposure has occurred to ensure a thorough trial.
