You should recieve Scribblenauts and Uncharted 2 on time unless you have become victim to an unofficial strike, CWU has not issued an official strike yet.
The CWU is NOT after more wages, they are in fact pi***d off with Royal Mail making changes to 'modernise' the business, 'Modernising' meaning letting go of some employees and letting the rest of us take the slack. I can see why the CWU has decided to take action but as you have already mentioned they are shooting themselves in the foot.
The thing is, Postmen are actually well paid for the job that we do, the CWU in our office's case are trying to hold on to the easy job we used to have 2-3 years ago. Sadly this is not going to happen, one thing i want to make clear to all who read this though is that when Royal Mail say they are losing business and volumes of mail are going down THEY ARE LYING.
Volumes of mail have increased and due to this our jobs are getting harder, have you noticed your postmen delivering later and later?
The CWU are saying that Royal Mail bosses are letting the job go to s**t because they are doing a poor job of managing the company, this is true
However the CWU are also doing a poor job of solving this issue, a strike is going to kill the business, Amazon have left and other customers are looking elsewhere
An official strike will only work with the backing of the public and this time that is not happening, if you are reading this send a letter to CWU to tell them how stupid they are
Royal Mail wants us to work for our pay and i have no problem with that, but the CWU do
Ahh thanks for the info. I understand it more now
I have actually noticed the postman getting later and later. Normally post would be delivered before 9:30 am now we get post at around 12:30-1:30 pm ... and he is driving a large van now, when he usually just walked or cycled.
But yeah, I don't agree with the way the union is handling this issue, but again, I don't know how else they can get their voices heard, whether on not I agree with them or not.
