Please find attached the decisions taken at the CWU Postal Policy Forum held on 22nd/23rd March 2016.

The whole of the Union is now united around policy relating to all aspects of concern: commitment and the application of our current agreements, the future vision for Royal Mail, employment and standard of living security, and our members’ dignity in retirement.

We believe that our members will welcome the clarity of our position and the fact that we are insistent on negotiations with the employer to ensure that we genuinely have a mutual interest consensus vision on how we move forward.

It is vital that our members are fully briefed on the position we have taken, and, whilst we will be working on a robust communication strategy nationally, it is also the responsibility of Branches and our Representatives at all levels to ensure that our members are aware that the Union is addressing both their immediate and long term concerns.

It is important that everyone understands that our policies do not represent a list of promises but a list of challenges that we have total determination to address. However, our degree of success will increase if we have the full support of the membership and we must not take that for granted, we must work for it.

Against that backdrop the Policy Forum document “The Future of Royal Mail, Pay and Pensions” and the attached policies will provide useful reference for any future Branch communications or members’ meetings. To reiterate, going forward we will be developing a national communication strategy to galvanise and unite the whole of the Union around our policies.

Any enquiries in relation to the content of this LTB should be addressed to the DGSP Department.

Yours sincerely,​​​​​
Terry Pullinger​​​​​
Deputy General Secretary (Postal)
