Postal workers have just voted overwhelmingly against privatisation. 96% on a high turnout have endorsed the unions campaign against the sale. Thank you for your support.
The strength of the opposition from workers sends a clear message to the government and Royal Mail that privatisation is not what the company needs. Royal Mail has recently announced profits of over £400 million and can be a success in the public sector. The government's plans and Royal Mail's support for privatisation is short-term and only benefits vested interests. We don't need the type of investment that takes more out than it puts in.
This debate is not over and you can take direct action to support the campaign and stop the sale.
CWU is part of a coalition to stop the sale.
