ROYAL MAIL GROUP DISPUTE – NATIONAL ONLINE BRIEFING
Branches and Representatives will be aware that since the Joint Statement was concluded there has been an intense series of negotiations with RMG to reach an agreement.
Talks have been difficult and protracted, although some progress has been made; however, this is insufficient to conclude an agreement. The Postal Executive have met this evening and are supportive of the Officers’ rejection of the current position advanced by RMG. The Postal Executive have also taken an in principle decision in relation to strike action. It is therefore crucial we make significant progress in the coming days.
To reach an agreement, there has to be a genuine change in attitudes from management in the Field in relation to both Executive Action and the continued attacks via conduct and suspensions on our members and Representatives which must cease.
In view of the position facing the Union and its members in RMG, a national online briefing of Branches and Representatives will be held at 11:30hours tomorrow (Saturday 25thMarch). This will provide our activists with an opportunity to hear an overview of the negotiations as well as the in-principle decision taken by the Postal Executive to take further strike action after Easter.
Whilst acknowledging this is exceptionally short notice, it is vitally important that as many Branches and Representatives as possible are in attendance – the link to join will be sent via our Communications Department.
A/Deputy General Secretary (Postal)
