SATURDAY JUNE 18th – TRADE UNIONS MUST DELIVER THE CHANGE THE UK NEEDS

SATURDAY JUNE 18th – TRADE UNIONS MUST DELIVER THE CHANGE THE UK NEEDS

Monday night’s debacle in Westminster with the Prime Minister narrowly avoiding defeat in a vote of no confidence, yet vowing to carry on, spells out clearly that the scale of change workers and the country needs will not come from politicians. A New Deal for Workers and the change we need at this moment to challenge the impact of the cost of living crisis and deliver proper pay rises for workers must be led by trade unions.

The CWU has always been at the forefront of this campaign and separately we also have ongoing industrial action ballots across our two major employers, a live dispute with the Post Office and serious negotiations in a number of other companies.

This backdrop gives us another opportunity to remind branches that next Saturdays rally (June 18th, 11amPortland Place) in London is a huge moment not only for the CWU but the whole trade union movement.

We are seeing signs online and across the other unions that we are heading for an excellent turnout.

The CWU led the call for this rally to be held and has led the New Deal for Workers campaign from day one and we must now deliver.

We must now deliver the biggest mobilisation at a public event in the union’s history.

We recognise the amount of work branches, reps are putting into winning the ongoing disputes across the union, and your efforts will deliver for our members as always.

Saturday 18th June is complimentary to this work and as previously communicated; we will be using all of our communications channels to get the vote out in the BT Group and Royal Mail Group ballots with live broadcasts, videos and podcasts.

It is crucial every single branch in the UK brings the biggest possible delegation to London and we ask you to consider and with just over one week to go we ask you to give further consideration to the following:

  • Getting all Branch Committee members to attend
  • Releasing all local reps to attend (or as many as possible)
  • Encouraging all members with days off to attend
  • Asking everyone who is attending to bring friends and members of their families

Next week we will share the exact location of the CWU block in Portland Place and any final messages.

Thank you for all your work on this and our other campaigns.

Saturday 18th June will be a fantastic day – lets deliver for our union and the movement.

Yours sincerely

Dave Ward
General Secretary
