As a retired RM employee I am not surprised on the ballot result. Time was when strikes were called over silly things which the militant brigade lapped up before sitting down with the management and "thrashing" out a deal which no one understood or cared but, apart from a few days loss of pay, no harm was done.
Now we are in a completely different field where managers are expected to, and do, use bullying in order to drive productivity. I personally have witnessed this so I am by no means surprised to find us at this juncture.
We all know that the business is having to adapt to a new market but that does no excuse bad practice. If we do not have the expertise to man manage a labour intensive workforce then one can not be surprised if three quarters of them express an overwhelming desire to kick back. Very few of the privatised industries have had a successful transition and RM is no exception, so perhaps those in the hallowed halls of Victoria Embankment may care to take a solitary look at their position before blaming a "feckless" workforce.

Here we go again!
