POST OFFICE: “THE FUTURE OF THE POST OFFICE, JOB SECURITY & PENSIONS” – BALLOT FOR INDUSTRIAL ACTION

POST OFFICE: “THE FUTURE OF THE POST OFFICE, JOB SECURITY & PENSIONS” – BALLOT FOR INDUSTRIAL ACTION
Dear Colleagues
Ballot for Industrial Action – Notice Served Today
Branches and members will be aware of the Executive action taken by the Post Office recently with regards to the serious issues over which we are in dispute, including the attack on pensions, the Future of Supply Chain and Franchising (privatisation of Crown Offices). Since the carriage of Emergency Motion E3 at annual conference, we have made every conceivable effort to persuade the Post Office to engage with us in a meaningful way with the aim of reaching an overarching agreement. Regrettably however, the Post Office has not taken these matters seriously and continues moving forward with its various plans that, in the absence of an overarching agreement which includes job security, will undoubtedly include Compulsory Redundancies, something which has never happened in the Post Office before.
As a consequence of the above, the Postal Executive has made a unanimous decision to serve the formal seven days notice for an Industrial Action ballot across the whole of the Post Office membership. The Post Office has been notified today.
Ballot Timetable
 
Monday 1st August – Ballot papers issued

Friday 19th August – Ballot closes and declared

 
Next Steps
It is imperative all Branches call membership meetings at the earliest opportunity to engage with our members in order to ensure the best possible ballot result for strike action. Delivering an excellent YES vote is fundamentally important to ensure our members have a decent and secure future in the Post Office. If Branches need the support of the Postal Executive at membership meetings, please contact lsheridan@cwu.org to make arrangements. A further LTB will follow tomorrow.
Yours sincerely
Andy Furey Ray Ellis Dave Ward
