Royal Mail Group Ballot – Peer to peer texting – One volunteer per Branch needed
The Communications Department are launching a new peer to peer text messaging system tosupport our get the vote out operation across all the Industrial Action ballots that are taking place in the CWU.
As you can imagine, having conversations with over 100,000 CWU members in the Royal Mail ballot will be a significant logistical operation.
We will utilise our postal executive members, field officials and CWU staff but we also want one volunteer per branch to join the team.
The technology involved is very easy to use but we recommend each branch puts forward a volunteer with the time and skills to take on this project.
The first texts will be sent on Friday 1st July with a national training event held at 11am on this day. Branches are encouraged to put forward their volunteers by no later than Friday 24th June so we can put all necessary planning in place.
The name, Email and mobile number of the selected volunteer should be emailed to Marcia Murray firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line TEXT VOLUNTEER ROYAL MAIL GROUP.
We look forward to working with you all on this initiative.
