So after winning their injunction and holding off strike action for another 7 weeks (Nov 30th), what’s the betting we are offered a lump sum to not strike over Xmas pressure?

I’ll stick a poll up for a bit of fun but as far as I’m concerned they can shove it where the sun doesn’t shine.

they have to give 2 weeks notice of a strike so that would be week commencing 11th dec right in the middle of xmas pressure

The judge has given 5 weeks of mediation so I accounted for the 2 weeks notice.

They can stick the Xmas Bonus where the sun don't shine. This is my future. Heard a few Olds talking today, they don't give a s**t as it does not affect them,most looking for IHR as well.. Selfish gits.

They get nothing from me from now on. This Company is s**t.

The employer has messed up big time here. A strike during Christmas Pressure is not good ! ! ! And how angry am I about those flawed individuals at the top and their "Injunction" ? I am very very angry. . . you will destroy this magnificent institution if you carry on as you are ! ! !

Genuine question, if its so bad at Royal Mail why don't you walk out and get another job? Or failing that (and considering the realities of jobs not being as easy to come by as they once were) start looking and applying such that you can continue working until that new job is secured, then walk away.

Dear loyalsnail, even senior royal mail management sneer at your attitude, or at least any normal thinking human!

Genuine answer - because then all jobs will be in a race to the bottom.

Genuine Question: Why is it so wrong to stay and fight for better conditions, more recognition and a better job.

It was a genuine question, there are a lot of people with strong anti Royal Mail feelings, yet they still work for the company. Why? Is it the camaraderie between workers, the hours, the pay? Why do people who hate their job so much not at least look elsewhere (as was an option I included in my statement)? Are people looking but just not able to find anything better, or indeed anything at all? I'm genuinely interested.

It's not wrong to do so but to have such extreme views based upon a perception of where the company is going as opposed to where it is is a little... Extreme.

I know what they say, for evil to prosper all it takes is for good men to do nothing but my partner works for the NHS... Capped rises if she's lucky, my Old Man hasn't had a pay raise at all in eight years... Is the CWU fighting the good fight for the benefit of all? Maybe. Do they need to demonize Senior Management? I'd argue not.

I think you've got the wrong end of the proverbial stick, it's not the job people hate,when we are outside of management control ( in the main), outside,it's a brilliant job, it's all the politicking and constant changing for no good reason ,that a lot of us hate. Remember we get demonised by management, we're all lazy,stupid,thieving etc, well a fish rots from the head.

Some people don't like change and can't except it.
