Branches are advised that a National Briefing to discuss the current legal trade dispute and the status of negotiations with Post Office will be held as follows:
Tuesday 17th May
12:00 – 2:30pm
Birmingham & District Amal Branch Office
47 Summer Lane, Hockley, Birmingham B19 3TH
The meeting will receive a report on the initial strike day – 3rd May and an update on the current position along with next steps. A Q&A session will be held.
The following Representatives are invited:
- Branch Secretaries with Post Office members
- Regional Secretaries & Political Officers
- One Divisional Rep from each Division
- Supply Chain Unit Reps (both Cash Centres and Depots)
- Full-time Post Office Reps
The primary objective of the briefing will be to discuss how we can focus our attention on how best to engage with the media and politicians with the aim of raising the profile of the dispute beyond the Post Office. This approach is in accordance with the following policy contained within Emergency Motion E4 carried at Postal Conference:
“Branches will also ensure that they instigate local campaigning activities in regard to media and politicians to support the aims of the dispute.”
I’m pleased to advise that the Comms Team will also be on hand to provide our Reps with tips, help and any support they may need when engaging with the local press, as well as giving an overview of media engagement in general.
