Postal workers’ plans for industrial action is about improving pay and conditions – Rebecca Long Bailey

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, responding to Andrea Leadsom’s comments about postal workers’ plans for industrial action over improving pay and conditions, said:

“The choice at this election is clear: the Tories on the side of needless greed or Labour on your side.

“The Tories and Lib Dems sold off Royal Mail, hitting workers’ jobs and living standards while the company has paid out £1bn to private shareholders.

“CWU members voted overwhelmingly to strike before the election was called. This is about workers improving their pay and conditions and the future of the postal service.”
