United Kingdom - Complex and difficult talks at Royal Mail - April 30, 2017

The talks with the Royal Mail over plans to close its pension scheme in its current form are ‘complex and difficult’, according to trade union Unite. Unite, which has about 6,000 members working for the Royal Mail, was responding to a pensions update statement from the company. At this stage, it is not possible to say if an agreed solution can be found, but Unite is committed to making every effort to ensure its members have decent pensions provision in the future. If parties don’t achieve a satisfactory outcome, an industrial action ballot or even strike action might be organised.
