Post Office: New Strike Ballot Over Pay Disputes – 2021/22 & 2022/23
Branches are aware that our strike ballot expired on 28th September 2022. The Postal Executive has therefore decided to instigate a new ballot for a revised trade dispute as we now have two pay disputes over the pay freeze for 2021/22 and the inadequate 5% pay increase and £500 lump-sum for 2022/23.
The following ballot timetable has been endorsed by the Postal Executive:
- Friday 14th October – Serve notice
- Friday 21st October – ballot opens
- Thursday 17th November – ballot closes and results declared
The ballot will include the following questions:
- Are you prepared to take part in Strike Action?
- Are you prepared to take part in Action Short of a Strike?
In regard to Action Short of a Strike, the ballot paper contains the following explanation:
Action Short of Strike will take the form of:
Overtime & Scheduled Attendance bans along with Working to Rule, Withdrawing Cooperation. Additionally, it will entail a Sales Boycott for Crown Office members.
The above approach and timetable has been discussed and is supported by our full-time Representatives.
Branches are urged to bring the contents of this LTB to the attention of our Post Office members.
