CWU picket line

Stanmore Picket

I joined the CWU picket line this morning with Cllr Graham Henson and Huw Davies (CWU) at Stanmore, Parr Lane.

Pretty much all workers (98%) voting for the strike shows the depth of feelings and an extremely serious fall out between the workers on the ground and the Managers. I've heard today most shocking and horrif first hand account, from a number of employees on the picket line, of harassment and bullying. The staff have accused the management of treating them like slaves, horrific incidents of stress among the employees due to the shabby treatment they receive e.g. a staff member collapsed very recently on the floor ending up in Hospital and cases of members not being allowed leave for bereavements or ill health in their families. I have also been told about a much worse incident which I'm not at liberty to put it in public domain but if it true and work related the Royal Mail and the Management have a lot to answer for! The situation is extermely serious and if the management is serious about resolving the situation I call upon them to put in place an indepndent investigation immediately.
