Post Office UK, for or against?

I normally post a few things re eBay at the post office. The crown branches are on a 2 day strike which was slightly inconvenient. In the past I have been against strike action but have to admit to being supportive of this one. Whats the general opinion these days regarding strikes as companies try to push wages and working conditions down to lower levels.

Should we fight for out rights or accept the lowering standards that companies try to impose on us.

Re: Post Office UK, for or against?

When the unions were first formed to fight for the rights of the working man, they managed to improve the conditions and pay for many. However, like topsy, they grew and became monsters, ran by the likes of Arthur Scargill and Red Robbo. I totally agree with the postal workers strike and the working man fighting for his rights.

Don't want to go back to the days of Scargill running the country. Tend to believe that workers lose more through strike action.

In days gone by I would have agreed as unions just kept fighting for more and more, with the PO they are fighting to keep what they have. The thing with the PO is some staff have never received a pay rise for 4 years and the new deal means other people that they cant influence have to hit impossible targets so they can get a one off payment in 3 years time, so that will 7 years without a pay rise if indeed they ever see it. They also want to introduce zero hour contracts which will put some staff on beck and call whenever suits, some staff have to travel a fair distance to get to work, imagine being told to go home at 11.00am and to come back out at 2.00 pm, some have 12 a day travelling expenses imagine paying that twice a day! Or do you hang around walking the streets until your time is up.

Now by comparison the Chief exec gets around 700,000 a year plus bonuses and also got a 37% pay rise this year and they paid out 15 million in bonuses to the top execs.

In other words most chief execs are paid on profitability so the easiest way to hit that target is to deny the lower end workers a pay rise, not what I would call effective management. A business should be managed to increase growth which in turn increases profitability....thats good management, denying those very people that earn you your wage is immoral but typical of todays greedy management culture .

Re: Post Office UK, for or against?

Juco , spot on imho and very well said.

The man who cost the UK more working days than anyone else was the " airbrushed from political history " arch Tory Ted Heath.

Three day week , what a winner that was for the country and it's people.

Thanks , Steve.
