Royal Mail’s Management Strategy- Scabbing


Royal Mail will recruit up to 30,000 temporary staff to deal with upcoming strikes by postal workers and the Christmas rush, the service has said. The Communication Workers Union has called two nationwide strikes next week over pay, conditions and reform. The firm said it would hire twice the usual number of extra pre-Christmas staff to cut the impact of “unjustified and irresponsible” industrial action. But the CWU said managers should be talking, not “planning for failure”. The 24-hour strikes will begin on 22 October. On the first day, mail centre staff and drivers will strike. The next day it will be delivery and collection staff.

And guess what, because of the ‘crisis’ (the creators of which are currently paying themselves multimillion pound bonuses) there are lots of unemployed people and because of welfare privatisation and ‘reform’ they cannot survive for long or take work of their choice, see how that works?

    Just so I understand, who are you calling a scab?

    The extra extra hires who are doing the work of striking posties, a reservoir of desperate causal labour has been created and I can sympathise with people needing to do the work but it is nevertheless scabbing. There is growing evidence Royal Mail have been planning for this for ages, in other words there were no real chances for negotiations, this is part of the privatisation effort by RM and Mandelson.
