Problems with Swaps register

Post has a swaps register for people whose jobs have been axed to swap with someone who wants to go but CWU members have told the union that very few swaps have actually taken place. When members ask why they have not been able to swap with someone at the same level, in same location and who could do the job with minimal training they are fobbed off by Post with “we can’t talk about individuals”. 

Where an employee identified for retrenchment wants to be retained and another employee wants to accept the retrenchment then the swap should occur (except where need to retain key skills or expertise). Indeed there is an obligation on Post to take all steps to secure such an outcome that is set out in the RRR Agreement. 

For help with the swaps register, contact your CWU branch or national office.
