As a result of the meeting on 17 October 20123, Openreach have confirmed that new rosters will not be issued in the coming days to allow time for further reflection and discussions to take place.
Openreach sent information to members on 18 October 2013 that makes it clear that although the new work patterns will not be implemented yet, the company is still committed to implement revised Winter Working Rosters. The communication stated:
" I remain completely committed to a new approach to Winter Working. The safety improvements are very important to us all, along with the opportunities for efficiency which of course help us become more competitive."
CWU representatives will meet at a Special Branch Forum which has been called for Wednesday 23 October 2013, we will update members on the outcome of that forum.
