Post Office members – VOTE YES and join us on the zoom rally at 7.30pm!Postal March 8 2022
Around 1,400 CWU members working for the Post Office will start voting tomorrow morning on strike action against the pay freeze. The union is calling for the biggest possible YES vote and asking members to attend this evening’s ‘virtual’ meeting…
“It’s so important that we get a massive YES and also a massive turnout,” said CWU assistant secretary Andy Furey, as he prepared for the 7.30pm online rally. With inflation high and rising, we’ve got to smash the freeze.
“Our key worker members have worked exceptionally hard over these past couple of years, continuing to serve the Great British public though the worst public health crisis in living memory and keeping Post Offices open while banks and others shut down.
“It’s an absolute disgrace that bosses have imposed a pay freeze at such a time – and there’s not even an economic rationale to the freeze, with the Post Office in healthy profit thanks to the hard work, dedication and devotion to duty of our front line members.”
Starting at 7.30pm this evening, Andy will be speaking direct to Post Office members around the UK, explaining once again the important issues at stake and the reasons why the CWU has moved towards a national strike ballot.
CWU head of communications Chris Webb will be hosting this evening’s event and he tells CWU News: “we’ve already had good numbers of people registering to take part and there’s no doubting the strength of feeling out there – it’s anger at this pay freeze.
“If you haven’t yet registered, then please do so using this link and please join us tonight – let’s all get 100 per cent behind Andy and all stand together in this fight for a fair deal.”
Andy is also looking forward to this evening, saying: “It’s a great opportunity for members to hear the very latest information and also to hear form others around the country and realise that everyone is angry – let’s be angry together. Let’s all stand together. Let’s all fight together.
“And most important of all right now – watch out on your doorstep for that ballot paper. And when it comes, VOTE YES!”
