STATEMENT FROM LABOUR PARTY

Rebecca Long-Bailey, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, responding to the High Court’s ruling on strike action by Royal Mail workers, said:

“The privatisation of Royal Mail has seen the denigration of postal workers’ terms and conditions, all whilst dividend payouts to private shareholders has reached £1billion.

“Companies should engage with their workforce rather than take them to court. This injunction will solve nothing, only negotiations will. This is further evidence that the current system is rigged against workers and trade unions.

“Our hardworking postal workers deserve better, that’s why Labour will reverse the privatisation of Royal Mail. We will empower workers by repealing the Trade Union Act, rolling out collective sectoral bargaining and strengthening workplace and trade union rights.”
