We are totally revamping the CWU members magazine, The Voice. These changes will include a move to a more features based publication with pages for members views and some great wider content. We’ll also run competitions and have a little bit of fun. We are delighted to announce for the next issue in September we have ceased using a plastic postage wrapping and we’ve moved to a 100% compostable wrapping. Finally, we’ve designed a great new cover and we want YOU to be the stars. We want reps and members to send us selfies of you at work or in uniform and we’ll use them in a giant montage. Whatsapp your photos to 07907502190 Please share this post so we get as many photos as possible.

CWU ELECTIONS EXTENDED UNTIL 29th July NEC, Industrial Executives and Regional Secretary Elections 2019 – Change of Closing Date of Ballot Since the publication of LTB 428/19, dated 9th July 2019, which provided the detailed explanation from ERS as to why there has been a delay in the arrival of ballot papers for the above National and Regional elections; we have continued to monitor the situation and have held daily discussions with ERS to receive further progress reports. Additionally, during this period we have been consulting with a number of branches and regions to ascertain the latest position in their areas. During our enquiries it has become clear that there are certain areas of the UK who are still experiencing problems with the arrival of ballot papers. We have updated ERS on this matter and they have assured us that all of the ballot papers are now in the postal system. Whilst we understand this may be the case, we have made further representations to ERS to secure an extension of the closing date from 24th July 2019 to 29th July 2019 to allow those members affected by the delay to have a greater opportunity to cast their votes. I can report that due to the position we find ourselves in as a result of the actions of ERS, they have agreed to the extension and therefore the closing date will now be 29th July 2019 (first post). CWU HQ will be publishing the extension by all means possible including across all our social media platforms and we seek the assistance of branches to take every possible measure to publicise the revised closing date to their members. We believe that this should include using localised social media, the distribution of this LTB to workplaces/Members and where practical holding workplace meetings. Yours sincerely, Tony Kearns Senior Deputy General Secretary

With ballot papers arriving in the post around 2nd July here is why your branch chair John Fairclough is recommending a vote for Andy 🗳 “I have been a member of the CWU and it’s forerunners since 1981. I became a union official in 1987. I am supporting Andy for the position of T&FSE Young Worker because Andy’s commitment and enthusiasm towards young workers. Andys involvement in the charity walk on behalf of three great charities and his attendance at national and regional young workers events. His contribution towards annual conference from the rostrum and his commitment to the wider Labour and Trade Union movement. All of this shows me that Andy is the right person for the job and will represent young workers at the executive passionately and eloquently. Please support Andy. 🗳 “

Stockport constituency Labour members need a trustworthy candidate. That’s why I'm standing to be the next parliamentary candidate ✊✊ I've backed Corbyn in his leadership campaigns and supported him on the NEC. As a Stockport local, I know what needs to be done.

CWU North West Region

A young, female, dedicated, politically astute, fearless, caring, listener, speaker, hard working CWU rep. Could there be a better candidate to be yours and my voice Elli speaks for the youth, she has taken time to listen to the retired members and coming from a merged branch has an all round view of the whole of the CWU, what all our members face and struggle with: deliveries, MT, cleaners, building services, office staff, admin, Parcel force drivers, hubs, and all T&FS. No other young worker has the all round view of the CWU that Elli has. VOTE Elli Long ANGELA TEELING CWU ASSISTANT BRANCH SECRETARY

The Chancellor has rejected the idea that up to 14 million people are living in poverty in the UK because "that is not what we see in this country". He needs to look a little harder. Nine years of austerity have driven record numbers into poverty across Britain - and workers have suffered most. The Chancellor is in denial: austerity and poverty go hand in hand. https://www.tuc.org.uk/blogs/chancellor-denial-austerity-and-poverty-go-hand-hand
