Royal Mail are desperately trying to divide our membership. This will never happen. The CWU and our members will come together in the next 3 weeks to deliver the biggest possible yes vote and turnout in the national ballot. Union power.
Sheffield Mail Centre weekend shift are voting YES
The government talk a lot about unions needing to modernise but aren’t so keen when it could help more workers get involved in workplace democracy. Still, CWU members are ready and willing to post, collect and return the ballot papers of any union balloting for action 📮
"This is for all workers.. this can't carry on. You cannot continue to talk about levelling up.. when all of the proposals these companies come forward with are actually levelling down the lives & living standards of working people. Its not acceptable" @DaveWardGS of the @CWUNews
.@DaveWardGS from the @CWUNews on #Ridge: "If people look at the financial crisis 2008, the pandemic, the cost of living crisis, the climate crisis, the only certainty in the UK at the moment if we dont make a stand... is that the rich are going to get richer". Well said Dave!
.@DaveWardGS from the @CWUNews explains why his members are being balloted - "BT posted profits of £1.3billion last year, Royal Mail posted profits of £758million. They paid shareholder dividends of £700m and £400m respectively". So what about fair pay for their workers? #Ridge
