Anger over bonus for Royal Mail boss

CWU union members in Royal Mail are voting on a deal with bosses.

The vote is taking place amid news that Royal Mail boss Moya Greene is set to pocket a £1.4 million bonus.

Greene gets paid nearly £500,000 a year and grabs £200,000 in pension contributions. Post workers in Royal Mail are paid around £19,000 a year.

The deal means workers’ pay will go up by 9 percent over three years. Many will welcome that.

But it doesn’t address long term issues over deliveries or management bullying and harassment. And it includes an effective no-strike agreement.

Accepting the deal will only make matters worse and members should reject it.

The ballot ends on Wednesday of next week.
