Ballot Results 2010
Business Transformation 2010 and Beyond Ballot Result
The ballot result is in for the Business Transformation 2010 and Beyond consultative ballot. Returns show members have voted two to one in favour of the deal.
Dave Ward, CWU deputy general secretary, said: "This is a strong ballot result for a strong deal and we're delighted that our members have fully supported this hard fought for agreement. The deal recognises the importance of staff in successfully implementing change and rewarding people for the work.
"Job security was a major issue for us given the changes ahead. The deal commits Royal Mail to retaining full-time staff, improved flexibility and a voluntary approach to any redundancies.
"It was obvious to everyone involved that the old 'them and us' mentality simply had to go. Industrial relations have to improve and we're all committed to that.
"Now the challenge is on for us all to prove in practice that we can all work together to build a positive future for our industry, our members and the public whom we serve.
"We'd like to again thank Roger Poole, ACAS and Brendan Barber for their efforts over the past months which have helped to secure this successful outcome."
