Stop kidding ya self about assuming if there is no Rmg we are doomed ,we are not .You have only been a Plc 2 years and still have a lot to prove and learn technology etc and there is competition out there so let us see how this business is performing in 5 years before anyone makes judgement eh .I have to say that you do come across as one of the old school and a staunch Union man but change is in the air for Rmg as I said you are a Plc now answering to shareholders so I'm sure you are going to see things different from your past years soon .By the way my brother is a grafter and accepts that things will change in the future so should you Scargill oh sorry I meant Isleworth ha ha.
I'm not getting personal. Argos,Amazon et al is a totally different beast to RMG. We DO NOT stock items. Once all the naysayers on this board realise this, they may actually realise what our job entails. No customers, no job ?? Read the above line. If there is no RMG who delivers all the mail, letters and parcels for the price we do ? If we could order pick from a pre-stocked warehouse, do you not think we could provide a 12 hr turn around for delivery ? I do not make it out to be the hardest job in the world. But it is extremely physical and wearing. Ask amazon or argos to pick up Little Johnnys present from his Nans post office counter in cornwall and deliver next day to Scotland for less than 3 sovs. IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN.
Charlie. Behave yourself. Arsenal tips " his brother " very well at crimbo. So no need for whip round. LOL.
Can we organise a whip round here for the postie who actually delivers Arsenal's mail. The only upside to that job I can see is hearing the regular screams coming from his bedsit as Rolls Royce issues yet another profit warning. Put me down for a tenner!
Don't worry we get it. alright but why do you make out it is the hardest job of all time and I only work 39 hours a week ,won't they pay you for more than the allotted hours try not to get personal after all you could be one of the good old timers for all we know ha ha
My working week is 39 hrs. Some days are longer or shorter than others. But I work my full week. Where do you suggest I find the time to deliver outside my normal working day ? You suggest flexibility ? Who does my daily work if I am now delivering parcels between 7 & 10 pm ? Where does the extra time come from ? I REALLY DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE SUGGESTING RMG DO. PLEASE EXPLAIN IN LAYMANS, FOR THE LESS WELL EDUCATED THAN YOURSELF, WHAT YOU THINK RMG AND THEIR POSTIES SHOULD BE DOING. Are you suggesting we work for free ? What the customer wants ? Tell that to the staff in my office who have been starting anywhere between 04.30am and 06.30am and finishing as late as 19.00pm. Of course ebygum and Arsenal would both work for free, wouldn't you ? Just another example of 2 posters who do not know what actually happens in delivery offices
Yes you are spot on enthusiasm a lot of the staff don't like constructive criticism they just call you names , I laugh at them inside as I wonder how many of them are old school eh ? The union has been very quiet since being a Plc eh
I think that reply just about sums up the attitude of RM rank and file i.e. no appreciation of what the customer wants, more interested in their own long outdated opinions and unable to think beyond their own dyed-in-wool attitudes. Why bother with the issues when personal attacks require no intellect.
I'll assume that this van driver agreed to work said hours. If I joined RMG and was told i'd have to deliver at these hours, I would. There is no argument. He/she would have been given only enough drops to cover that 3 hour period as well. Free delivery? So what ! RMG is the middle man charging customers to deliver THEIR items from A to B. Should we deliver all handled items for free ? If we sold sofas, hairdryers, playstations etc, i'm sure we wouldn't charge our buying customer for delivery. All in all 1 of the most ridiculous posts and comparisons I've ever read on this board. AND THAT INCLUDES ANTONS.
