CWU conference: merger talks

Issue No. 2106

A motion from London branches that sought to rule out any possible merger between the CWU and the Unite union was passed after a card vote.

The motion included the words, “Conference deplores the disgraceful actions of certain Unite members [meaning some Royal Mail managers who are in the CMA section of Unite] during the recent postal dispute, which has left a number of representatives and activists facing dismissal.”

The motion was heavily opposed by the CWU’s leadership, but received widespread support in the union’s branches.
