I NEED EVERY FOLLOWER TO RT THIS Your local postie is facing the most important week ever. They are facing intimidation, threats and bullying from an out of control management team. They will strike for 2 days to save the service and their jobs. Are you with them?

The CWU (@CWUnews)

“Our customers will leave us if you go on strike” Yes. But they will come back. Because Royal Mail is still the best postal provider in the UK. This here is the heart of the dispute. The bosses want us to be just another courier. We won’t accept that. #StandByYourPost

The CWU (@CWUnews)

No. The company won’t dictate anything. We have 115,000 rock solid members who are the backbone of the service. They want and will be getting a say.

The CWU (@CWUnews)

No thanks. We’re saving jobs and the service. And we’ll do whatever that takes. #StandByYourPost

🚨 BREAKING: CWU make further attempt to resolve ongoing Royal Mail Group dispute with offer of urgent negotiations. The ball is firmly in the court of Royal Mail Group CEO, Simon Thompson. #StandByYourPost

I hope @RoyalMail is watching this! Solidarity @CWUnews Workers across the country must now stand TOGETHER

Stand by your Post! ✊

Everything King Charles says here is right. This is why we cannot give in. This is what we are fighting for. It is time for the British public to stand up and defend their postie. We cannot and will not let the privateers destroy us or the service. #StandByYourPost

The CWU (@CWUnews)

Hey Richard, no he isn’t. As you probably know full well. We imagine the striking workers like Dave. That’s why they’ve voted for him to come through the union as a telegram boy right through to our general secretary.

The CWU (@CWUnews)

Welcome back!

The CWU (@CWUnews)

Thank you David. Great to have you back!

We have lost over 700 followers today. Clearly something is going on with Twitter. And at a time when our postal and telecom workers need support like never before. Please RT this, follow us and help get the message out there. #StandByYourPost

I might have been grumpy about the Royal Mail website the other week but that doesn’t reflect on how I feel about postal workers! I love saying hi to the familiar faces that deliver to us and I completely support them going on strike!

David__Osland (@David__Osland)

Don't blame posties for voting 98% in favour of industrial action. Blame Royal Mail management for forcing them to strike.

The CWU (@CWUnews)

This is an all time classic from this Royal Mail banter era (and that’s saying something) They opened every office this week to pretend people are working. Now they’re telling members they’re closing them for next weeks strike because nobody came in. Pack your bags, Thompson

Hater (@TheCriticiser3)

Thompson says he’s only doing what customers want, but all my customers want is a reliable service, delivered as early as possible and them not having to be home to receive their delivery. There are several new revenue stream hidden within that idea, also.

Royal Mail trying to sack 25,000 staff, have paid out £2bn in dividends and can’t even guarantee staff a proper pay rise. #StandByYourPost https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/1701324/royal-mail-two-billion-shareholder-pay-out-pay-increase-ont

The CWU (@CWUnews)

Here is a Royal Mail manager gloating about getting stuck into clearing mail on a strike day. And they have travelled 60 miles from their normal workplace. This isn’t right. This isn’t acceptable and we won’t stop calling it out. #StandByYourPost
