Last ditch talks between Royal Mail and CWU fail

No primary category set

The CWU have just held a press conference confirming that Royal Mail workers would go on strike this Thursday and Friday and also promising to announce further strike dates in the near future.

Dave Ward who was leading negotiations with Royal Mail said that the CWU “made progress with Royal Mail” and wanted to end dispute through negotiations. He said the blame for the derailing of talks rested with external forces and named “three characters who have not been to meetings – Mark Higson, Adam Crozier, Peter Mandelson”.

He went on to say Lord Mandelson was “in cohorts with management” and that he believes “it’s pay back time” for the union. He said that the “Government and Royal Mail are working hand in hand to ensure CWU and Royal Mail don’t come to agreement” with the ultimate aim of privatisation.

We’ve been accused constantly by posties of not listening to their side, so we invited the CWU to guest post on TameBay, so that they could put their point of view to small business owners, and explain why the strike is something they should support.

We asked the CWU to explain why the strike action is necessary, and specifically to address our readers as to how it will affect them, and how they believe the severe disruption a strike will cause will benefit this group of small businesses in the long term.

They agreed that this would be a good idea, and promised us content on several occasions but have failed to deliver. Small business owners can draw their own conclusions from the CWU’s failure to address their concerns.
