Protective Clothing - UPS

Dear Colleague,


A resolution was submitted to the National Conference of Road (Freight) Transport in 2010 which was considered by the GGC. The decision was to write to UPS asking for their view on what constitutes Personal Protective Equipment for their operatives.

In turn, the GCC instructed me to write to branches asking what PPE was made available for Freight Operator members. The responses received from Leeds Goods & Cartage and London, Anglia & Midland branches were considered by the GGC who instructed me to write UPS Ltd again to establish which PP they offered to their handlers.

I have written to UPS Ltd and await their response which I shall circulate once received.

Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of all affected members.

Yours sincerely,

Bob Crow

General Secretary
