Keynsham postal strike

I support my postal worker

Postal workers in Keynsham are to go on strike on the two days before Christmas – in support of a Communications Workers Union (CWU) member who was sacked by the Royal Mail.

The sacking has caused outrage and the CWU has issued the Royal Mail with a strike notice, There will be no mail collected or delivered in BS31 from Saturday, December 21 to Friday, December 27.

The CWU said the member was sacked under the sickness process which was wrongly applied.

An attack on democracy

I'm standing with my union

Bristol TUC takes the view that the recent decision (13th November 2019) at the Royal Court of Justice to stop Communication Workers Union members from striking is an attack on the entire trade union movement and must be resisted.

The Communication Workers Union balloted over 110,000 members who voted by over 97% in favour of strike action in a massive 76% turnout. The strike was to oppose the casualisation of the Royal Mail

Bristol TUC extends its support and solidarity to postal workers and their union the Communication Workers Union in what is now a battle for democracy itself.

The Communication Workers Union (CWU) is fighting to save our nation’s cherished Post Office network.

This campaign has recently been launched by the CWU in response to the bombshell announcement that 74 Crown offices are to be franchised (privatised) to high-street retailer WH Smith – a move which will impact some 800 jobs and drastically cut services to communities.

The CWU is fighting back, with a range of high-profile local and national campaign activities being planned over the next few months – particularly in the run-up to Christmas.
