As we go to press, Communication Workers Union (CWU) members in the Royal Mail delivery office in Invergordon, north of Inverness have walked out. This is in support of a temporary worker who has had his contract terminated, outside of the agreed industrial relations framework.
The CWU nationally flagged up the possibility of a flash point over this issue just before Christmas, forcing Royal Mail management back on a UK-wide basis. However, the local bosses have continued the attack, forcing the posties’ action. CWU members are determined to get the worker reinstated. This action shows that posties will continue to fight to defend their agreements.
