CWU UNION leaders have made a deal with Royal Mail bosses to drop threatened strike ballots. In return managers have agreed not to impose changes to workers' terms and conditions at a local level without agreement with the union.
The agreement is near-suicidal for the union at a time when postal workers face a massive challenge over privatisation. In addition to the PostComm announcement:
There is a real danger that the privatisation plans will roll on while the union does nothing. Union activists must demand that the union moves immediately to a national strike ballot of all postal workers over the vehicle outsourcing proposals and related developments.
