Royal Mail - Not For Sale!

Vince Cable has announced that the ConDem government is to sell off the Post Office - despite the fact that Post Office workers, and the big majority of the public oppose this.

Janine Booth, RMT Regional Secretary, said: “When this disastrous policy was floated by the last government a couple of years ago, our Regional Council unanimously passed a resolution condemning it. We know from the experience of PPP, and from mainline rail privatisation, that selling off public services only benefits private-sector fat cats. Working conditions, job security and the service itself always suffer.

“RMT will give our full support to our fellow trade unionists in the CWU as they fight this privatisation.”
