Mandatory redundancy would be last resort for IOMPO

Wed, 15 Nov 2023

Chair of the Isle of Man Post Office (IOMPO), Stu Peters, said in the House of Keys yesterday (November 14) that the post office is exploring various solutions including re-deployment opportunities, changing work hours or seeing if any staff would be interested in voluntary redundancy.

The post office has had to make ‘fundamental changes’ following the decision to stop the mail plane and transfer post to the Island by boat; which has led to a 'surplus in capacity'.

Employees at the IOMPO are to be consulted about the future of their careers. Peters said that mandatory redundancy would be the last resort.
