For a 100% publicly owned post service

The government’s plans to hand crucial chunks of Royal Mail to a private company such as TNT are a fundamental assault on a key public service. If implemented, they will inevitably lead to a far worse postal system, mass job losses, dozens of mail centre closures, continual demands for undermining of workers’ conditions and pensions, and pressure towards full privatisation.

Everyone should join the campaign to defeat these plans and to defend a 100 percent publicly owned Royal Mail. There are already signs of the potential for revolt among sections of Labour MPs. But, with the Tories enthusiastically supporting the scheme, this is unlikely to be enough. We hope all supporters of the Charter will support the CWU union and other groups in their campaign to halt this privatisation.
