Royal Mail: Business Recovery, Transformation & Growth

Business Recovery, Transformation & Growth is a 35-page national agreement between the CWU and Royal Mail Group. It covers all operations and functions across the business and it has been formally endorsed by the union’s Postal Executive.

The CWU’s postal executive has formally endorsed BRTG and has also decided to hold a consultative ballot, on the agreement, of all Royal Mail Group members. Ballot papers were dispatched to members on Thursday 22nd June and the result will be announced on Tuesday 11th July.

The Postal Executive is recommending a YES vote.

On Friday 16th June, our General Secretary Dave Ward sent out a video message to members, in which he set out the progress the CWU has made in its talks with Royal Mail on a range of issues, as well as announcing an extra lump-sum payment that has been achieved for the workforce.

This new lump-sum payment is fully explained here and the new joint statement clarifying the issue of changes to start and finish times can be read here.

The Postal Executive is recommending a YES vote and, last week the union broadcast a live question and answer session dealing with the full range of issues. You can watch this here.
