Reps Briefing: Strike Ballot

CWU representatives from workplaces across the UK have filled a hall at Birmingham’s ICC conference centre this morning (Thursday) as they prepare for the forthcoming national strike ballot.

The meeting opened with a short presentation from Royal Mail CEO Moya Greene (pictured).

Following this, representatives will hear from the union’s general secretary, Billy Hayes and deputy general secretary, Dave Ward on securing a Yes vote in the forthcoming strike ballot.

“Reps are geared up to take on Royal Mail to achieve a fair, no-strings attached pay rise; oppose proposed changes to their pensions; and seek legal assurances on terms and conditions to deal with the impact of any privatisation,” explained Dave Ward from the briefing.

“We’ve got a lot of hard work ahead of us but judging from the level of enthusiasm and support in this packed hall, we’re confident our members will return a yes vote in this crucial ballot.”
