POST OFFICE: PAY DISPUTE 2021/22 – OFFICIAL STRIKE TUESDAY 3RD MAY

POST OFFICE: PAY DISPUTE 2021/22 – OFFICIAL STRIKE TUESDAY 3RD MAY

Branches are advised the Postal Executive has authorised a single day’s strike for Tuesday 3rd May for all of our Admin, Crown and Supply Chain members and the two week legal notification for this date has been served on Post Office today.

The Union remains available for negotiations; however, it should be noted thus far, Nick Read, CEO has disregarded our attempts to find an amicable solution to this dispute.  It follows that we have been left with no choice in this matter, hence the notice for strike action.

We have naturally consulted with our full-time IR Reps and they fully support the choice for the day of action, which follows the May Day bank holiday.  Our members have been patiently waiting for action, bearing in mind the ballot result was actually declared on Monday 28thMarch.  This demonstrates we have not been reckless in this matter.  That said we clearly needed to activate the strike mandate and would be confident the dispute will be supported by our members, who, as Key Workers, worked throughout the pandemic and obviously deserve a pay rise.

The recent rise in the cost of living to 9% (March RPI) further strengthens our resolve in respect of securing a fair and reasonable outcome on behalf of our members.

I’m sure we will have the opportunity to discuss this matter at conference next week and the Postal Executive will be considering how best to facilitate this.

Further developments will be reported.

Yours sincerely

Andy Furey
Assistant Secretary
