Talks between Royal Mail bosses and CWU union leaders were set to continue this week in a major dispute that looks likely to lead to a national strike.

A letter to CWU members in London from regional officials said that “strike action before Christmas remains a real possibility”.

Royal Mail bosses are planning a major attack on workers’ pensions, pay and conditions.

They want to scrap postal workers’ defined benefits pensions scheme and replace it with a worse defined contribution scheme.

This would mean less money is paid into workers’ pension scheme throughout their careers.

They also want to give workers a paltry pay deal and reorganise Royal Mail’s delivery model, moving towards a casual workforce.

Socialist Worker says there should be strikes unless there is a deal that:

Guarantees a pension scheme for all workers in the industry, not just those who’ve worked there the longest
Gives workers an above-inflation pay rise not linked to productivity deals
Guarantees that workers aren’t forced to change their hours to fit in with Royal Mail’s profit drive
Gives workers a shorter working week—without loss of pay

The CWU union staged a “Close the Gap” week of action campaigning for equal pay for telecom workers in BT.
They want workers employed by the Manpower recruitment agency to be paid at least the Living Wage of £8.75 an hour.

It is the Socialist Worker - you know the ones who want a revolution. A strike for them is the first step in overthrowing the capitalists.

if we are prevented from striking before Xmas then those 4 days (27th to 30th Dec) would give us a proper break over the holiday period. No doubt Moya and her cronies will be back slaving away at their desks the day after Boxing Day :Applause . Just make sure you have the first week of Jan as annual leave :Very Happy :Very Happy
