the deal
An open meeting to discuss a campaign
to win a No vote in the CWU ballot
Saturday 27 October
Vernon Square campus of SOAS, Penton Rise,
London WC1X, Just off King’s Cross Road,
nearest tube, King’s Cross

“We, the undersigned, call upon CWU postal branches, CWU representatives, and ordinary
CWU members to sponsor, support and attend an Open Special Conference to organise
the maximum No vote in the forthcoming ballot. We would like to remind you just why this
deal should be rejected.

lFlexible working—potentially every day

lPensions destroyed in the future—working until 65
lContinued threats to mail centres
lUncertainty over continued payments for Door to Door
lA pathetically below-inflation pay deal
lAgreement to changes in start times which were initially imposed
lLong days and short days agreed—for example the possibility of a nine-hour Friday
lPotential working in neighbouring offices and work outside normal duties
lNo amnesty for sacked reps

The conference will be held in London on Saturday 27 October and we urge the maximum
attendance. Initial signatories to this appeal include:
Dave Warren PEC member
Angela Mulcahy Area processing rep East London postal
Paul Turnbull Area processing rep Eastern NO4 branch
Dave Chapple vice-chair Bristol & district amal
Pete Firmin vice-chair London West End amal
Geoff Breeze Southampton CWU member
Merlin Reader Local rep, Mount Pleasant
