POSTAL workers have warned Royal Mail they will not fall for “stunts” as the CWU rejected an offer from company bosses to avert a looming national strike.
The postal service told the CWU that if it removed the threat of strike action for the rest of this year, it would enter talks without any preconditions.
However the union’s general secretary Dave Ward rejected this “stunt,” telling them in an email: “If Royal Mail are serious about avoiding disruption to the postal service they will put an offer on the table that protects our members’ jobs, terms and conditions and the service they provide to the public and businesses.”
CWU members at Royal Mail voted by 97 per cent last month in favour of a national strike against the casualisation of the postal service and for Royal Mail to honour the 2018 Four Pillars agreement regarding employment security.
It is thought to be one of the biggest strike votes in British history.
No strike dates have yet been confirmed.
