Royal Mail strikes set to continue

The Communication Workers Union (CWU) have now confirmed that Royal Mail Strikes are set to go ahead.

The union met with the Royal Mail Group this morning, where CEO Simon Thompson failed to attend despite the severity of the ongoing conflict.
According to the CWU an offer was put forward with the aim of settling the dispute, but this was rejected by Royal Mail.
Dave Ward, General Secretary of the CWU, said: “They have presented their proposals as a final ‘take it or leave it’ offer and the Postal Executive have just met and unanimously voted to reject their offer.
“We will hold a CWU live event tonight at 7:30pm and we want the whole union online.
“We will set out exactly why Royal Mail’s offer will destroy your jobs, terms and conditions and the service as we know it.
“This is the most serious situation that has ever faced postal workers.
“We are facing compulsory redundancies and thousands more job losses than what the company will admit to. It will also result in later starts, total flexibility, Royal Mail being turned into a gig economy employer and the end of the public service as we know it.
“Make no mistake, this attack directly impacts every single member, workplace and function in The Royal Mail Group.
“The job of all is us is to deliver the biggest ever support for strike action.”
