Court rejects CWU appeal

Submitted by AWL on 4 December, 2019 - 3:58 Author: Ollie Moore

On 28 November the High Court rejected an appeal by postal workers’ union CWU against the injunction granted to prevent strikes by Royal Mail workers.

A union statement said: “We have just left the High Court. Our appeal was dismissed. Six hours of evidence and they took two minutes to come to a decision. The justice system in this country is an absolute farce.”

Following the rejection of the appeal, most CWU activists think the union will now move quickly to organise a new ballot for industrial action. Some postal workers are discussing an unofficial “work-to-rule” over the Christmas period – often used as a form of industrial action, but one that does not require a ballot, as it simply involves working strictly to the terms of one’s contract.
