Up the walking pace and stop communicating with customers ?... Quite right too. Bunch of lazy feckers the lot of em ( well that's what lizard said ).......... I think all these tory pond life came out of the same test tube.

Hes clearly not smelled his coffee. Its shows for how long theyve had it so easy and good that theyre completely oblivious and complacent about those that are earning their large crust.

https://www.unitetheunion.org/news-...The deal is worth 11,for the local Unite reps.

Unite, the UK’s leading union, has secured around 700 Heinz workers a pay increase worth 11 per cent.

As well as a 5.5 per cent increase on base rates, the workers will receive two one off payments totalling £1,200.

The first payment of £500 will be paid immediately, while the second £700 payment will be received in January 2023, subject to attendance. The payments are not subject to national insurance or income tax deductions.

The deal is worth 11 per cent on average to workers’ yearly wage and includes an additional three days off during the Christmas period.


Respect Nature
They must have been on minimum wage or very close to it, judging by the amount they will get.

I have great respect for Unite, a great Union, currently fighting for the missus company, to increase the hourly rate. The haven't has a pay rise for 5 years, won't really be of benefit to her though, she retires in 2 months.

Whilst posties showed respect in trying to maintain a good standing with the public, ROYAL mail had no such qualms with the shit they've flung at their staff.

Whilst people have nodded at the 'respectful' decision by CWU and RMT, their bosses have not respectfully ceased the war on their staff.

We'll always be subservient to the establishment, and yet the establishment don't play by the rules they expect the rest to follow.

Screw Royal Mail and solidarity to posties
