LTB 220/17 - Four Pillars: Presentation Slides from National Briefing 28th March 2017 (1)
Four Pillars: Presentation Slides from National Briefing 28th March 2017
Further to the National Briefing held at TUC Headquarters on 28th March 2017, attached are a series of presentation slides providing an update on the Pillars of Security negotiations with Royal Mail.
The presentation slides set out the latest position on each of the union’s four Pillars:
• A Pensions Solution for All;
• A Shorter Working Week and Pay Claim;
• Extension to our Legally Binding Agreements; and
• A Re-designed Pipeline.
As the DGS(P) and National Officers reported to the Briefing, the CWU are clearly disappointed that in response to the union’s positive, forward agenda, the company have looked backwards and set out a programme of managed decline designed to strip out costs and maximise future returns to shareholders. As well as savage cuts to our pensions, the company are also proposing significant cuts to members’ pay and conditions, unwanted changes to our current agreements and IR Framework and a future pipeline predicated on later acceptance times.
While recognising that talks with the employer are still at an early stage and will continue, it is clear that we remain far apart. It is therefore critical that Branches continue their work to support the union’s campaign and use the presentation slides and other related material to alert members to the serious threats posed by Royal Mail’s short-term, cost driven approach and win maximum membership support for the union’s four Pillars of Security.
Further updates will be provided to Branches in due course.
Any enquiries relating to this LTB should be addressed to the DGS(P) Department.
