The Communication Workers Union (CWU) is reballoting members in Royal Mail over management bullying and the company reneging on the ‘Four Pillars’ agreement – which established employment, standard of living and retirement security, and a shorter working week.

Last year the High Court dismissed the appeal by the CWU against the scandalous decision to stop postal workers taking national strike, despite winning its strike ballot with an incredible 97% yes vote on a 76% turnout.

Gary Clark, Socialist Party member and branch secretary of CWU Scotland no.2 branch, says: “To be clear management are out to destroy the power of the CWU and must feel strengthened by the election of the Tory government. And we are clearly in for the fight of our lives.

“We must now get another massive Yes vote and get our members up for the battle ahead.”

The CWU is organising gate meetings at Royal Mail depots around the country on 25 February.
