If something is important, can't the union publish a written bulletin rather than having to watch videos?

They do, they are called Letters to Branches, and ones that may interest RMC members are posted when we are able to.

No doubt one will follow in due course.

What does TUPE mean or stand for if it is an abbreviation?

As far as I understand it a lot of other nations main postal companies have moved away from a six day operation or to an every other day delivery service for letters. I think the UK has more of a culture of letter writing than other countries but it is also a generational activity as well. The EU's GDPR has really kicked us in the face which has accelerated the decline.
If the regulator in charge of the USO agrees with any changes that RM wants next year I don't see the union being able to stop it though.

TUPE stands for the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations. This is relevant to any redundancy decisions where a business or part of it is transferred from one owner to another.

Both the old and new owners are required to inform and consult staff affected directly or indirectly by the transfer of ownership. Your employment rights are also protected when the business changes hands. The terms and conditions of your employment are maintained when a business, or part of one, is transferred to a new owner.

It does not mean that the new employer cannot make you redundant but it is worth talking to a specialist lawyer to check if your employer is being fair.

Introduction to the four pillars states;
"This agreement has been reached within the spirit and principles of the Agenda for Growth, Stability and Long Term Success Agreement and its Legally Binding Contract"

Terry appears to differentiate between the four pillars agreement & our other legally binding agreements.
So is the four pillars agreement legally binding?

No.
Collective industrial agreements are not typically enforceable in law.

The legally binding section of the last agreement was separated from the main agreement which meant that only those specific sections could be actioned however there have always been sufficient get out clauses in the legally binding statements to allow RM the scope to change /ignore them. Specifically the sustainability of the USO and the financial obligations of the business.

Basically I wouldn't place too much importance on the words "legally enforceable" or too much faith in the courts coming to our rescue. No court is going to enforce an agreement that could be shown (however dishonestly) to place the entire business model at risk. Courts are inherently pro-business and anti-union.

Courts should be neutral shouldn’t they? What a “democracy” we live in.

Hope union doesn't bottle it if strike action before Xmas. The whole point of a strike is to cripple the service.

The whole point of a strike is to force the employer into making the maximum possible concessions without endangering job security.

It's always a judgement call and you'll always walk away thinking you might have got more, it would seem in this case that Rico thinks we got too much.

If a General Election gets called would we be banned from balloting for a strike and/or holding s strike between when an election is called and the day after the election?

We don't live in a democracy, we live in a corporatocracy, with a bit of oligarchy thrown in for good measure.

The only veneer of democratic process that we have is getting to vote for whichever lib/lab/con puppet of the banks, the corporations and the wealthy establishment we have as our political leaders.
