Turnout was low Terry making excuses

We will not be calling strike action at this point and are proposing postal workers become an additional Emergency Service during this national crisis.

We hope Royal Mail pick up this proposal.

It seems that almost half of Parcelforce are happy or indifferent with the future Royal Mail have lined up for them.

I wonder if Royal Mail are still recruiting for the Easter pressure period.

I totally agree with the union holding back on strike action during the coronavirus outbreak.

What I fear is Royal Mail will carry on with Executive action and they will also use the low turnout on their propaganda TV.

Time will tell.

It means as a tool for industrial action this ballot is worthless.
We'll still be dealing with Coronavirus in 6 months when the ballot legally dies. The business will probably be in deep financial trouble and the country will be deep in recession.

This is very messy and to be honest good luck to the union. Members will need to dial down their expectations, anything they get from this position is a bonus. At least we've given them a bargaining position but what comes out the other end might not be pretty.

Yes the union have acted as they should over to Rico.

I thought there were over 135000 staff in Royal Mail. The actual number of ballots sent out is a lot less than I expected. It’s hard to understand how 30000 odd people didn’t bother to vote and a good lot voted no to strike. I assume they are happy to be on the dole in the near future or running around for 12 hours a day on low wages. :arrrghhh

Ballot result : Yes 94.5% No 5.5% : No strikes : Low turnout

There is no way Royal Mail will halt its strategy, they will just plough on as they know ff all will happen.

No voters , whats the point in you being in the union? Pathetic .

I wonder if Ofcom will be influenced by the current situation with regard to maintaining the 6 day USO.

Depends if we get roped in to deliver vital supplies. I can see a situation of supermarkets closing, online orders only and for the elderly who dont have access to computers is where we come in to deliver food packages.

What's the point in democracy if you're not allowed to decide for yourself which way you vote?

What’s the point of being in the union and not voting ? Like being part of a political party and not casting a vote in the election. I’m sure the 40000 who chose not to vote will still want the union to help them in certain situations. Weakened the bargaining position for all of us now. It’s pathetic.

Ballot result : Yes 94.5% No 5.5% : No strikes : Low turnout

Low turnout , No votes on the up. Shows the members are losing faith with the current Union stance , time to change the Union leaders whom have lost focus on the dispute but upped their personal campaign against Rico . We need negotiators working for the members interest, not personal vendettas
