The one thing everyone seems to agree on is that if the RM is privatised, split up or whatever, we will all end up paying more for a worse service. Assuming this is actually true, surely this underlines the real problem with the RM?
I heard some Posties on the radio the other day, they didn't even know why they were striking. They were throwing around ridiculous numbers relating to competition that simply weren't true, one claimed RM only delivers 5% of small packets sent in the UK
I understand why the average postie is angry and frustrated, I see that they feel backed in to a corner and that strike is their only option. I wouldn't want to give up my final salary pension, I'd be angry if my employer had consistently failed to make the company more competitive despite me seeming to work harder and harder to tighter margins.
To the poster who says we shouldn't believe the press, what do you make of this article? If you know something I don't I be pleased to here it
