Consultation with CWU State branches on Post’s proposal to roll out its PDC2 Team Leader program will commence from January 2016.
The program is to have PDC2 Team Leaders who look after between 20-28 PDOs. PDC2 Team Leaders will not have rounds to deliver. PDC1s will be eligible to apply for the new positions. The PDC1 role will eventually disappear. However a combination of PD1 and PDC2s may continue to be required in some facilities.
Some of the issues raised by the union at the National Delivery Consultative meeting held in November included the pay level for the PDC2 team leader role and salary maintenance for PDC1s.
The program was trialled in NSW.
