Royal Mail posted massive profits of £758 million last year, paid shareholders £400 million and then imposed an unagreed two per cent offer on postal workers. With RPI running above ten per cent, this is a massive real terms pay cut for the very people who made them this money and kept us all connected and supplied under the difficult and risky conditions of the pandemic. I’ve been supporting members of the Communications Workers Union in their dispute with Royal Mail again this month. If Royal Mail can’t operate without driving down workers’ pay and cutting jobs because their first priority is always paying shareholders, then that’s just another argument to take the service back into public ownership where it belongs – as Labour delegates unanimously voted for at this year’s party conference.
