This is not a ballot against change. It’s a ballot against attempts to rip up the terms and conditions of postal workers and destroy one of the strongest trade unions in the UK. Everyone sees you.

Enough is enough. In the U.S. and across the world, working people are fighting back. They are sick and tired of seeing the rich get richer, while workers fall further and further behind. We stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in the UK.

Liz Truss says workers in this country need “more graft.” What an insult to the nurses and cleaners and firefighters and posties that they cynically clapped. Britain is full of grafters at the bottom – and grifters at the top. #EnoughIsEnough

Another massive vote of no confidence in the Royal Mail Group CEO and Chair. They need to listen to their front line employees or face the consequences!

@CWUnews stall in Liverpool

Enough is Enough (@eiecampaign)

NEW: #EnoughIsEnough has written to prime minister @BorisJohnson imploring him to urgently recall parliament. Sitting down with energy companies and walking away with no new measures is a dereliction of duty. He must act now: stop the October price hike.

Paul Pritchard (@pauljpritchard)

So water has been privatised for 33 years and after all that time a fifth of water leaks away. They say it's too expensive to fix, yet they've paid out £57b to shareholders, surely half that sum would've gone a long way to fix it and still pay dividends???

The CWU (@CWUnews)

Royal Mail Group are not serious about talks on change. The chair and CEO are influencing negotiations from outside the room. That’s why the CWU will not meet them now until both figures enter talks. Get the vote out.

R M is obviously a very profitable business when it comes to rewarding Directors & shareholders and becomes a loss making operation when it comes to re-numerating workers with a fair & just wage rise, both of these cant be true #EnoughIsEnough @CWUnews @NWCWU

🚨 NHS waiting lists are now at new record high of 6.73 MILLION 🚨 🚑 Nearly 30,000 people waited more than 12 HOURS in A&E LAST MONTH. 🏥The biggest crisis in the NHS' history - with one in eight people waiting for care - and it barely gets a mention from Truss and Sunak.

Tracey Fussey 💫 (@TraceyFussey)

This is a tad cheeky given the vulnerabilities our #CWU Capita VMO2 and Tesco Mobile members are facing given the lack of a fair pay deal! Hmm not good Capita

Peter Stefanovic (@PeterStefanovi2)

We’ve heard some Brexit bull**** but to tell the audience with a straight face we got better trade deals then the EU..

In 2010, the UK had 66 foodbanks. Today, there are at least 2,000 – more than the total number of McDonald’s. This can’t go on. If you agree, join the fight back at http://wesayenough.co.uk

Preparations are being made for a consultative ballot of members across the Capita O2 and Tesco Mobile partnerships following the company’s reiteration this week of a derisory 4% pay offer. https://www.cwu.org/news/capita-o2-and-tesco-mobile-contract-members-urged-to-reject-4-pay-snub1/

Royal Mail have set their stall out. They are coming for the CWU and their plans will destroy the postal service in the UK. Our members will fight them every step of the way. We are going to take these millionaire posh boys to a place they’ve never been.

Jim McNicholls (@JimMcNicholls)

I notice no mention in the news of the Amazon stoppage by staff today. Scared other workers will gain confidence from this walkout. Good luck to all involved!!!!

Fantastic news that #TheCWU will be holding their Annual Conference in Blackpool in 2024 at the @WGBpl 🏖🪣 @CWUnews @DaveWardGS

The CWU (@CWUnews)

Royal Mail Group are coming at postal workers with later starts, less sick pay, removing allowances, introducing strike breaking agency and management force, moving work to competitors to intimidate CWU members and more. RT if you stand with your postal workers.
