CWU workers vote “Yes” to agreement with Royal Mail

No primary category set

Following the long running negotiations with the CWU, workers have voted to accept the deal agreed between the CWU executive and Royal Mail. This means that the strikes last winter are well and truly behind us and it’s business as usual for the foreseeable future for the national post service.

The deal is for a three year agreement with modernisation including the introduction of new automated machinery and delivery equipment and changes in the way postal employees work.

Royal Mail said they are extremely grateful to both Roger Poole and ACAS for their help and support in overseeing discussions with the CWU and that they are now focused on getting on with the changes that will give Royal Mail a strong and successful future.

  1. Sadly I am not sure it is all over – the Liverpool lot will surely be on strike again and the Bristol posties aren’t happy with the deal either.
