Dear GMB Member


Gary McColl and I met with management today to discuss a few issues that you have raised.

They have confirmed that you can stop to use facilities when on call, it’s only unnecessary deviation from a route that may be investigated. We welcome this clarification.

They have confirmed that there are alternatives in place for charging tools other than at home. If you have any issues with the chargers available to you, please raise this with your manager and Gary McColl as PKC have agreed they will seek to make other arrangements for you if necessary.

If you are regularly finding that you have a significant journey at the end of each working day, again, please raise this with your manager and Gary. There may be times when this will happen, however there has to be an element of fairness applied which they have advised they will review.

Please continue to raise any issues with Gary as your rep in the first instance and if anyone would like to get involved in your union to have a say, then please let us know.
