Post Office: New Strike Ballot Over Pay Disputes – 2021/22 & 2022/23

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.

Yours sincerely

Andy Furey

Assistant Secretary
