No grounds for Royal Mail strike

Harefield Gazette - - YOUR SAY -

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
