Posties withdraw goodwill from cruel bosses

Mayola Demmenie, Basingstoke Socialist Party

A postie spoke to a Basingstoke Socialist Party public meeting about the dispute in Royal Mail, and the consequences if we don't fight, on Wednesday 20 November. We met with around ten people, of which most were local postal workers.

The Communication Workers Union rep told us about management's bullying culture - and that since the High Court deemed the union's strike ballot illegal, the goodwill has gone. More and more workers who never used to take their breaks and always did overtime now don't want to do that anymore, and have started to take their breaks. When the discussion opened up, we heard more stories - of three dismissals in a week, for example. People have had enough.

Not only could 40,000 postal workers lose their job, but the public will lose a community service. The rep told us how one postie up north knocked on the door of a regular customer to hear the lady call her in.

Turned out this lady had cancer and just needed a chat. If new Royal Mail boss Rico Back gets his way, this lady won't have anyone to talk to. Yodel and Amazon drivers can't get to know their customers like that.

Letters could cost £3 to send, with no guarantee of being delivered next day. Again the elderly and vulnerable will be hit hardest, as NHS appointment letters might sometimes arrive weeks later.

It was clear that the workers see collective action is needed, along with solidarity from workers in other sectors.

Is anyone actually withdrawing their goodwill over the next few weeks? Only a handful of us have done so in my office (Medium size D.O). Still plenty scrambling for the OT and to get the election crap done.

I have noticed most paired up crews in our office are giving away 2/3/4/5 of the busiest loops some are leaving half the walk & finishing on time, the attitude seems to be “f**k em”

On the one hand we have TP wanking on about saving this great service and then we have attitudes like this.
All a bit confusing.
Either we believe in this great service, in which case we would continue to deliver it, not because of them but in spite of them, or we don't.
