Industrial relations update: ballot announced

Updated 26 February 2020

We have received formal notice from CWU that it intends to ballot its members on industrial action.

We respect our employees’ loyalty to the union and the union’s role in representing the interests of its members. But there are no grounds for industrial action.

On 20 February, we gave CWU a six percent three-year proposal for our CWU-grade people. We want to invest £1.8 billion in the UK to turnaround and grow. Our proposal underlines our commitment to being the best employer in our industry. 

A ballot result for industrial action does not necessarily mean there will be industrial action. We want to reach agreement

It’s business as usual at Royal Mail. We remain focused on our normal high-quality levels of service. We continue to accept, process and deliver mail for our customers.
