NATIONAL DISPUTES – CWU/ROYAL MAIL GROUP JOINT STATEMENT
Further to LTB 431/22, please find attached a Joint Statement, which confirms we are now entering a serious phase of negotiations to resolve our Pay and Change disputes.
The Joint Statement also confirms that the CEO has committed to negotiating on all aspects of Pay and Change, including their redundancy plans for 10,000 job losses. The Joint Statement also confirms that the Pay and Change offer tabled on Monday 31st October and the subsequent letter to Parcelforce members, will now both be the subject of further discussion and negotiation.
You will see that the Joint Statement commits the Royal Mail Group to a number of actions that are designed to deescalate tensions and avoid flashpoints in all workplaces. This includes a pausing of all activity with employees in relation to redundancies, alongside a commitment to start offering overtime opportunities again to our members. This is a significant moment given the attacks that have taken place on the union and our members and demonstrates that strategy set out earlier this week was exactly the right one.
Please ensure the terms of the Joint Statement are circulated to members in all workplaces.
Any enquiries on the above should be addressed to General Secretary at email@example.com and Andy Furey, Acting Deputy General Secretary (Postal) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
