oyal Mail senior management are insistent on driving through major change across all postal services. This change will have a direct and negative impact on CWU members’ lives, pensions, terms and conditions and ultimately the loyal service they provide to you, the customer, unless an agreement can be reached.

The impact of these changes will see massive cuts in services, resulting in the loss of around 40,000 postal jobs.

Your local Crown Post Offices and SubPost Offices have seen in excess of 3,000 closures over the past 5 years. There has also been a recent Government announcement that a further 2,500 will close over the next 18 months.
