Fair enough, but remember the USO is being reviewed next year and if RM cant get the workforce on side whats to stop it being awarded to Uk mail/DPD instead?


If the biggest delivery network in the UK would prefer not to be shackled with the USO why on earth would UK mail or DPD want it?? TNT tried delivering letters before and we know what happened to that. These companies like to cherry pick and you don't get that with the USO.

Also your comments about Asda are quite valid but the biggest difference is that Royal Mail have a lot more Union members at its disposal. This is our strength at the moment and the disruption a strike creates to our shares,it's not going to be long before they start to question the competency of the CEO in charge and the fact he's simply putting Royal Mail out of business. That's not the game plan here. Disregard everything that Royal Mail are saying about a strike handing over our work to our competitors and start thinking logically - which company has got the infrastructure now to deliver the letters and all these little Chinese packets?? Yodel,Herpes??? Amazon - they only want to deliver within a certain area of the UK. These couriers also only want to be delivering parcels shoebox size.

What's worrying is that there will always be a few strike-breakers helping us on the way to being a gig economy. The ones not in a Union yet will still work during a strike and still reap all the benefits that their colleagues have won them.


Strike wont happen now its ended up in the courts, told you all RM would win.

And the CEO will have a big one up him if he tries this time.

Don't be fooled by the claims of "competitors stealing our work"

The USO does maintain a lot of jobs. But, for whoever the regulator gives it to, it’s kind of like being obligated to maintain a network of phone boxes in an era when almost everyone - even your granny - uses a mobile phone.
It just occurred to me that, in an age where most of what we deliver is not letters, anything that won’t physically go through a standard letterbox is a potential nightmare for our competitors. If we’re on strike and they try to ‘steal’ our customers, can those companies suddenly find storage capacity for the countless items they can’t deliver, when the recipient is not home? I foresee social media posts and complaints about poor service, missing or misdelivered items, by those competitors, rocketing!

I don't think that'll be a big issue for our competitors who hammer into their drivers NOT to bring anything back at all costs. We're getting a lot of complaints as the local Amazon drivers are leaving packets on door steps if they can't get near a blue bin/shed, which end up drenched.

I’m really curious as to what goes into a blue bin in those far away lands
