2022 Dispute Relating to Royal Mail Group Breaking the “Pathway to Change” and Associated National Agreements and Protections for CWU Represented Grades Employed by Royal Mail Group Consisting of Royal Mail, Parcelforce and Fleet
In light of the huge turnout and record breaking YES vote in the above-mentioned ballot, subsequent updates in regard to RMG ignoring our national and local agreements, managerial Executive Action, the CEO writing directly to all employees and the Senior Field Officials’ feedback meeting held on 6th September, the Postal Executive have met today, (Wednesday 7th September 2022), following which notification has been sent to the company of our intention to take the following industrial action:
The strike will cover all duties and scheduled attendance commencing between the period at or after 04:00 on Friday 30th September 2022 and before 04:00 on Sunday 2nd October 2022. The industrial action will be discontinuous.
This strike action is seen as a proportionate response to the Executive Action that is taking place in the field and is the first that will take place in relation to the separate dispute above.
The General Secretary and myself will still continue to seek a Joint Statement with the company that enables meaningful negotiations and a period of calm. In addition, we will continue to pursue and widen the exposure of the reported VESA takeover of Royal Mail Group.
We would like to thank all of our Representatives and members for your continued support.
Any enquiries in relation to the content of this LTB should be addressed to the DGS(P) Department.
Yours sincerely, Yours sincerely,
Terry Pullinger Dave Ward
Deputy General Secretary (Postal) General Secretary
