Royal Mail statement on Access Letters and Parcels
The Communication Workers Union (CWU) has in the High Court today (June 19) given an undertaking not to induce its members employed by Royal Mail to refuse to handle Access letters and parcels. This is pending further hearing at the High Court on Friday June 28.
As a result any direction by the Communication Workers Union that postmen and women should refuse to handle Access letters and parcels would be unlawful. Under Downstream Access contracts, Royal Mail accepts letters and parcels at its mail centres that have been partially sorted by large customers and other postal operators, and delivers them across 29 million homes and businesses for an agreed price.
