POST OFFICE: PAY DISPUTE 2021/22 – OFFICIAL STRIKE MONDAY 11TH JULY(CROWNS) – PRESS & MEDIA COVERAGE

Further to LTB285/22 dated 27thJune 2022.  Following the two weeks’ legal notice served to Post Office yesterday for strike action on 11th July for Crown Offices, we received a significant amount of media attention, which led to a number of radio interviews (including BBC Radio 5 Live) as well as press articles.  The following links refer to some of the key stories:

Post Office Signals Potential Move Towards an Agreement

The response from Post Office in the media to the Union serving notice for further strike action was revealing assuming they weren’t being disingenuous.  Specifically Post Office stated they “remain hopeful that we can reach a pay agreement soon”.  This appears to signal that management are now prepared to negotiate in a meaningful way and we have written to them seeking confirmation of this.  For these words to become a reality it will require them to move away from the pay freeze position for 2021/22 and to make a markedly improved offer for 2022/23.

We hope Post Office means what it says and that good progress will be made when we meet on Thursday 30th June.  Further developments will be reported.

Yours sincerely

Andy Furey
Assistant Secretary
