2019 DISPUTE RELATING TO HONOURING & DEPLOYING THE FOUR PILLARS OF SECURITY & PAY / GUIDING PRINCIPLES AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CWU & RMG – CWU PRESS RELEASE
Branches will be aware that the National Officers met with Royal Mail Group earlier today as part of the ongoing mediation process.
However, prior to our meeting a letter was received from the business (on 28th October at 17:20) followed by a press release this morning that we can only conclude was designed as an attempt to totally undermine the Union and therefore minimise the possibility of an agreed way forward.
In response the CWU today issued the attached press release which clarifies the Union’s position on this matter.
A special meeting of the Postal Executive will be held tomorrow morning to provide colleagues with an update and to urgently consider our response and approach to this latest development. Further updates will be circulated to Branches in due course.
In addition, I can confirm that the Facebook Live Question and Answer session will take place as scheduled at 18:00 tomorrow. Branches are asked to advertise this event and circulate the contents of this LTB as widely as possible.
Any enquiries in relation to the content of this LTB should be addressed to the DGS(P) Department.
Deputy General Secretary (Postal)
