£2,000 in Shares ?
NO Chance ... Yes a quick yap about the Royal Mail "proposed flotation" ... naturally you the general public are seeing/reading what the Management/Government want you to hear ... £2,000 of shares ... is for the full-time staff - and due to the fact that a large majority of posties are actually part-time ... the part-time staff get "pro-rata" of this £2,000 ... so in my case it's actually £1,230 ... plus we cannot sell the shares for three years once received ... they're basically a bribe for the workers - together with a promised lump sum (once again "pro-rata") come Christmas 8.6% pay rise .. yes, over the next three years - but we've had nowt for 18 months ... And one of the biggest strings attached is dependent on "no strike" ... I could go on ... but I can't be bothered ... the whole thing stinks - feel free to vent your spleen at Mr Vince Cable (yes one of those Liberal Democrats who threw all their ideals out of the window for the chance of a Government post) ... .
