Royal Mail Statement on CWU ballot
Royal Mail is very disappointed that the Communication Workers Union (CWU) has confirmed that it is holding a national industrial action ballot of its members.
An Ipsos Mori poll, commissioned by Royal Mail, reveals that 72% of British adults believe the CWU should accept Royal Mail's pay offer and call off the plans to strike. In addition, 78% felt that the Royal Mail's pay offer of 8.6% over three years was "very fair" or "fair".
A ballot for strike action does not mean there will be a strike; currently it is business as usual for Royal Mail.
