HMRC has published Case Studies of RDT on the internal Intranet. We know that some members have been unable to access these “examples”. We have them available on request.
As is usual in this – it’s those around the cusp of “reasonable” that cause us concern. For those who wish to travel but are outside of RDT and those who have issues with travel but are deemed to be able to travel to the new location. The examples are a little too cut and dried in some instances and reflect the lack of engagement of existing Trade Unions in meaningful negotiations and in also understanding the issues of members involved. We in the RCTU are experienced in the nuances of travel and the issues for members in these stress times. It is crucial that as offices start to close that precedents are not made that are detrimental to members and that overarching policies are in place to protect members.
