And Terry and Co have also said that during Christmas pressure periods when the workers had rm's backs up against a wall with their pants around their ankles and rm still came up smelling of roses and the workers got shafted with deals of the century bollock$.

Tub thumping to the members and acting all Jeremy "I'll sit on a fence" Corbyn style when up against the company. They need to grow a pair and properly decide if they are a union or a bloody political party in the waiting with a social media public face image to uphold.

A hell of a lot of jobs at risk if they mess it up this time with another deal of the century.

My gut feeling is that the government would get any strike blocked anyway whilst covid is around

It's really not.
Much as I agree that the present dispute which to be honest has rumbled on for three years right through the last agreement has been woefully mishandled it is unfortunately not the time to start again from scratch.

What our members need right now is as much guaranteed job security as possible, that might mean some of the egos in the room have to be parked or even removed but the union has to stop looking for a "win" just to look good.

This is by far the weakest we've ever been in a negotiation period and the union had better start managing expectations with that in mind rather than talking round in circles on Facebook.

If we get out of this with a no score draw it will be a point gained
rather than two points dropped.

I don’t agree when Terry says it’s not the right time to have another ballot. This can’t go on for much longer before we take action. Stick this years pay rise which there is no sign of on the ballot paper while your at it.

I get the impression that our union leadership somehow genuinely believed that the Socialist Revolutionary Party would actually win the last election. They would then nationalise Royal Mail within a couple of days, grant all employees an immediate 10% pay rise, reintroduce the old pension scheme along with outdated working practices and they (the very highly paid union leaders) could claim all of the credit.

When that cunning plan surprisingly failed to produce results they didn't have a clue what to do next - and still don't.

Time to step into the real world, fight for jobs for those who want them (although those jobs will involve different ways of working), a decent exit package for those who don't want to stay with RM and collaborate with RM in introducing the changes needed to make RM competetive so that they will continue to employ members in 10 years time.

Stop playing politics and get on with representing the membership.
