POST OFFICE: PAY DISPUTE 2021/22 – STRIKE TUESDAY 3RDMAY
Further to LTB 196/22 dated 27thApril.
Emergency Motion E4 – Post Office Pay Dispute was carried unanimously this morning at the Postal Annual Conference. A good debate took place, with strong support from across the Union for our members due to Post Office’s insulting pay freeze position.
Many Branches are already reporting plans to support our members on picket lines on the strike day – Tuesday 3rd May. Our Senior Post Office Reps have the full details of the locations of all picket lines; therefore please contact the relevant Rep for further information. Additionally, Branches are urged to garner support on the day from MPs and local politicians, councillors, etc as well as the press and media (using the model press release attached to LTB 196 if required).
It should also be noted that Unite have sent out a positive communication to their members re-enforcing the policy that managers should not take on the work of CWU grades if requested to do so by senior management.
A further home mailing was sent to members yesterday, which is attached for your information and following the carrying of the Emergency Motion, a web article has been posted:
Further developments will be reported.
