Royal Mail “hopeful” CWU will agree to new proposal
Royal Mail has written to the CWU to say that if the union provides a binding commitment to remove the threat of strike action over the Christmas period, Royal Mail will enter into discussions without preconditions
- Royal Mail will also extend the life of the ballot result by the same amount of time as the pause on industrial action
- The Company is hopeful that the CWU will agree so Royal Mail can continue to deliver the best possible service to its customers during this vital time of year
- The recent ballot result for industrial action does not necessarily mean that industrial action will take place
Ricky McAulay, Royal Mail National Service Delivery Director said: “If the CWU agrees to rule out industrial action for the remainder of the calendar year – a critical time for our customers, we will commit to holding open discussions with no preconditions aimed at resolving the dispute.”
