So because of all the good things they've done in the past, that gives them the right to do whatever they like now?
.......the unions and their support of uneconomic practices.
So unions can do whatever they like ....... can they aracer ?
You are obviously living in a completely different country/planet/universe. Tell me which one it is, I'll like to pay a visit - I think I might like it.
Uneconomic practices ? Well on this planet, 'uneconomic practices' made the Royal Mail £321 million in profit last year - almost double the profit of the previous year.
Royal Mail profits almost double
It's worth remembering that any profit Royal Mail makes, goes (because it hasn't been privatised) into the government's coffers. And the more money that is pumped into the government's coffers, the less the government has to raise through taxation. So Royal Mail are subsidising the tax payer, rather than the other way round.
Of course in the days before the Royal Mail was asset-stripped by Thatcher, the huge mind-boggling profits made by Post Office Telephones subsidised the tax payer even more. I guess that is one of the reasons why the UK tax burden shot up to it's highest level in history under the Tories.
It seems aracer, that despite having joined a trade union, you would still rather believe the myths and bollox spouted by the multi-millionaire Royal Mail chief executive, and the unelected (unelected by anyone for anything) acting British Prime Minister
Here he is practising his egg sucking technique ...
No wait ................. you said, "I distrust them all equally"
So you think the elected officials of the CWU are as dodgy as the corrupt liars of New Labour do you ? Have you got some information which you want to share ?
There's only two sides in this dispute. Cut out the liberal fence sitting, and make up your mind up which side you support.
