Had a WTL last week with a district manager who tried calling out the industrial action and saying that PFW is a small part of RM and our votes are pretty much unconsequential because of it, our rep pointed out that without the Four Pillars, we would be open to takeover by rival courier firms.
It was the remarks about pay rises that pissed me off though. She launched into a patronising load of bollocks about how many of us (we do have women drivers) are 'new age men' who knew the cost of a weekly shop? I've been a single father for the last ten years and I find that sort of attitude from senior management to be insulting, patronising and mildly sexist.
Got home to find the ballot sitting on the mat, voted yes and went straight out to put it in the letterbox
