No grounds for Royal Mail strike
YOUR readers may have read about a potential strike at Royal Mail by the Communications Workers Union (CWU).
Our postmen and women have the best pay – and the best terms and conditions – in our industry. They do an amazing job in all weathers – rain or shine. Average pay is 45 to 50 percent above the National Living Wage. None of that is changing. There are just no grounds for a strike.
Previous strikes at Royal Mail meant we let our customers down. Some of our major rivals today were actually established because of those strikes. There really is no point shooting ourselves in the foot.
Royal Mail is a very good employer. We provide great terms and conditions. We are working hard to keep improving our services to customers in a very competitive industry.
There is no need to strike. We want to work with our postmen and women, our great ambassadors, to keep being the best delivery company in the UK. Tony Fox Royal Mail Regional Operations Director – South
