High Court backs Royal Mail’s case for dispute resolution

Today’s ruling means that any strike action taken before the dispute resolution procedures have been followed would be unlawful.

In a statement sent to Post&Parcel today, Royal Mail said: “We will now make contact with the CWU as a matter of urgency to begin the process of external mediation. The mediation process will take close to Christmas to be completed, and may be longer. The first step is selecting a mediator acceptable to Royal Mail and the CWU from a panel that was agreed by both parties under the Agenda for Growth.”

Royal Mail added: “We are very committed to working closely with the CWU in order to reach agreement as a matter of priority.”
