To quote from Terry's leaflet 'There is no fence to sit on' - but you've found it!! I don't agree with everything
the union does/says but there is too much at stake here to not vote 'Yes'.......

Could Royal Mail take the union to court again for balloting for strike action before mediation has concluded.

Royal Mail are not going to give you any special treatment if you vote no. Any one of us will be cut regardless of if you vote yes and no.

Good grief.
So I take it you're worried about losing your job if you vote Yes, on a ballot paper, that RM cannot identify you on, before you've even taken strike action ????

Something I was wondering as well.

But surely the union can't be that inept to not have checked that first....



...Can they?

They will take us to court to try and block, whether they win or not is another thing but we have followed the rules, we've gone into mediation, the ceo hasn't turned up, plus if we get a large YES vote and then all that will go in our favour.
And a high court judgement only leads to more talks within a timescale and if that fails we are out on strike.

A pretty health poll at the moment, given the NO vote will be made up of managers and dicks on here then we're heading for victory.

Why are they dicks if they vote no... everyone is entitled to their own opinion..

Opinions are based on facts, what possible facts could you find to vote no? and if its "we're losing money and can't afford to" then when 20K+ jobs are lost and you could be one is that still a good enough reason to vote no????

Opinions are based on facts


If you based your decision purely on quantifiable facts available now you would probably vote no principly because RM is not at the moment officially threatening us with much of anything.

What the union is asking members to do is trust its interpretation of what may happen in the future. There are not a lot of 'facts' involved because the business is not showing its hand so it is mostly supposition.

You can either trust the union or choose not to, neither position makes you a 'dick'.

The royal mail are keeping quiet for a reason . Rem all the forced upon us propaganda last time esp on our pdas . It all had the opposite effect on the result . In our office anyway the senior to mid service guys are def worried about our future jobs whilst them no long in door arent that bothered as much thats the feeling anyway in our office. Most of them havent joined the union but thats there choice .We do need a strong showing though esp this time .

RM want to split parcels off core deilvery and give the work to LAT offices meaning hours cut in non-LAT offices = job losses

They are dicks because the support the post above if you vote no. They are dicks because they support Rico Back's policy of slash and burn.

How many tens of thousands of jobs have we lost over the past decade?
We must all be dicks for having accepted that?

I agree we have lost jobs in the past and we had a different leadership then as in "Silly Billy" who agreed to everything RM wanted and perhaps we we're dicks for not demanding more at the time.
