Royal Mail Says Use All Legal Options To Prevent Industrial Action

Royal Mail (RMG.L) has received confirmation from the CWU that it is planning two days of industrial disruption at or after 11am on Thursday 19 October to before 11am Saturday 21 October 2017. This follows the CWU's announcement on 3 October of its ballot result in favour of industrial action.

Royal Mail said it is very disappointed by this announcement from the CWU. The Company is committed to further talks as a matter of urgency to reach agreement with the CWU. There are no grounds for industrial action. The company wants to reach agreement.

Royal Mail noted that it will be writing to the CWU invoking the external mediation process under the dispute resolution procedures in the Agenda for Growth. These legally-binding dispute resolution procedures were set up as a vehicle to resolve industrial disputes.

Royal Mail noted that it will use all legal options at its disposal, including applying to the High Court for an injunction to prevent industrial action.
