Branches will be aware that yesterday the union lost our appeal against the High Court decision to grant Royal Mail and injunction to invalidate our strike ballot.

The whole process and the speed in which the decision was taken, demonstrates just how much the justice system is rigged against working people and democracy. However, such injustice will only serve to make the union and our members even more determined to oppose Royal Mail and do everything within our power to continue with and win this dispute.

Furthermore, we can assure Branches that we will be working closely with the TUC to ensure the whole movement refocuses its fight against these draconian laws, as part our ongoing new deal for workers campaign.

The union will now need to carefully consider the full terms of the written judgement and its implications on any future industrial action ballot.

The PEC will meet next week and in due course the DGS (P) will advise Branches on the next steps in the dispute.

Any enquiries on the court case should be addressed


Yours sincerely



Dave Ward – General Secretary
