We understand concerns of Postmasters as Post Office Ltd is pushing for greater numbers of the “Locals” model. It is clear that the way Post Offices operate is changing, however, the voice of the Postmaster has not been heard in this regard. By joining the CWU, we can change this and make a difference together.

We have industrial strength with a long standing presence across the entire Royal Mail group including POL.

The CWU is a democratic union, with elected leaders, which has created its own Postmaster/Mistress and agents national branch. The Postmasters will have a big voice within the CWU – they will have their own autonomy.
