We need the consultant led 'new parcel strategy' to be binned!! Fair enough to introducing conveyer belts and machinery to increase our parcel capacity although that has to be combined with RM sales directors & staff acquiring more contracts and business otherwise increased capacity would not be used.
Once across the ground delivering letters, flats, packets, & parcels is the optimum way for us to deliver our product as RM have said themselves until fairly recently. If the union are not able or willing to defend this then we have not chance. Securing a pay rise for part time staff via the SWW is not what we should be concentrating on. Even the idea of moving to a five day operation cannot be even discussed by RM until the talks on the USO which won't start until over a year from now. That is a threat for the future which should be fought then and not now. It is just muddying the waters and drawing our fire.
The new parcel strategy should be our sold target as that is the immediate threat to thousands of jobs and a total change in how we work in RM. In the long term it is in effect the end of ALL our jobs as we currently complete them!


In Parcelforce we went to a 7 day week a couple of years ago it’s purely OT and not anyone’s scheduled duty. If RM want to increase capacity for parcels and get new business surely Sunday delivery has to be on the table. This could save a load of job losses from the declining letters numbers whether you are delivering letters on a sat or not.

I was asked a straight forward question this morning which I couldn't answer if we were to go on strike in November as expected would we forfeit our £200 pound xmas bonus?

We got the £200 bonus because of The CWU!

• Carry out a review of Royal Mail’s efficiency. This work will give us more insights into the likely future sustainability of the universal postal service. We intend to provide our latest view on the sustainability of the universal postal service"

So it is possible the review may commence as early as April 2020. In six months time.

You cannot be discriminated against, I believe. Wholesale sacking of non-union members would be unfair dismissal if they don’t carry out mass sackings of CWU members
