Staffing for Saturday trading

Following representations by the CWU national Office Post has agreed to speak again with local CWU officials about the staffing arrangements for Saturday trading, particularly in relation to hatch operations.

We have told Post that we are concerned about the safety and security of an employee working alone in hatch operations.

Post now say employees will be advised to close the hatch if they have any concerns about security. As well employees will be told that they should not attempt to lift parcels that are overweight, or of a size that would require a two person lift, even if this means that the parcel cannot be delivered on Saturday. Of course people will still feel pressured to deliver the parcel. Post knows this and uses it to their advantage.

If you are not satisfied with the staffing arrangements at your post office for Saturdays then contact your CWU Branch.
