Has the ballot result quietly expired?

The ballot closed on 17th March 2020, as far as I can see, the ballot is valid for 6 months. Up until 17th September 2020, which has passed...

The ballot can be extended up to 9 months if the Union and Employer agree to it, but I haven't heard anything about this?

It’s a bit of a coincidence that negotiations between Royal Mail and the union have hit some stumbling blocks in the last couple of weeks isn’t it. Almost as if it was planned that way....

I'm hoping the business introduce a wage rise by executive action.

The law was changed a couple of years ago , the union needs to re ballot every 6 months

And the union should have had a contingency plan to either re-ballot or get rm to agree to another extension. It's quite clear rm have done like the always do and timed it out. The union never learn, the members saw that move coming months ago.

And now it has lapsed the talks have run into the sand. Stalled on pay , RM want a 3 yr deal that's less % than the managers got and more strings than the violin section of an orchestra

Pay wasn’t part of the dispute. No doubt it will be part of the next one though.

The problem is the managers deal was a two year deal the second year of which has just been paid. I suspect if it was negotiated now it would have been nowhere near the same. A lot has changed in six months. Wasn’t there a pay deal offered before CV19 that the CWU didn’t feel was appropriate to give members the vote?

If the business refused to honour a pay deal that had already been agreed that would have been the beginning of the end for every future agreement.

Terry also said he wouldn't urge a reballot now given COVID and everything, as it would be a public image disaster.

So basically, unless something drastic happens and COVID goes away, that's it.

We need a consistent response on the eradication of our terms and conditions not a mealy mouth response on Facebook this is not a media campaign for a seat in the house of commons but a fight for our terms conditions. The right not to be bullied at work not to be subjected to endless lapsing/absorbsion and how we deal with the future of us all!
