The dispute between Royal Mail and the CWU is rolling on, with more strike action between now and Christmas. Ian Kerr (Postal Hub Podcast) and Marek Różycki (Last Mile Prophets) discuss:
– Royal Mail seeking (and being denied) approval to reduce delivery days from six to five
– CWU trying to regain control of the narrative in the mainstream media
– Vote of no confidence in Royal Mail CEO Simon Thompson
– Marek’s experience engaging with large numbers of employees
– Royal Mail messaging to workers and the general public
– Strike action over Black Friday and in the lead-up to Christmas
– Parcel shippers (e-commerce retailers) looking for alternative carriers
– Postal operators transitioning from a letters focus to a parcels focus
– Allegations that posties are being directed to prioritise some letter products
– Dialogue… and avoiding the „blame game”
– The universality of the issues being disputed
