Support for Royal Mail Privatisation MPs
THE North West
Region of the Communication Workers Union has confirmed that they
will not campaign for or help fund those North West Labour MPs and
ministers who have not opposed the Government’s plans to part
privatise Royal Mail.
The region, which has over 30,000 members in post, telecoms and
financial services industries, will lend no support to those MPs and
ministers who have either openly supported the part sell off of
Royal Mail or those who have sat on the fence hiding behind protocol
or the pitiful excuse that they are unable to make their minds up.
At a time when the public has lost faith in our political leaders
they can restore some goodwill by sticking to the commitment given
to the electorate and keep Royal Mail 100% in the public sector.
Carl Webb, NW Regional Secretary, said:- “Our members would
never forgive us if we assisted any Labour MP who has betrayed them
and the electorate by supporting the part privatisation of Royal
Mail, which will lead to massive job losses and reduced services
within the North West. We will be producing a list of those NW
Labour MPs who we are not supporting, and we have not ruled out
campaigning in their constituency.” The NW CWU also believes that it’s time for a clear-out of those
Labour MPs who jumped on the New Labour bandwagon and have tried to
ditch Labour’s traditional values. The electorate want a Labour
Party that stands up for the many and quality public services and
not a pale imitation of the Conservative Party.
Finally Carl said:- “The vast majority of North West Labour
MPs have openly opposed the part privatisation of Royal Mail even
though the un-elected Lord Mandelson has literally applied the
thumbscrews. These MPs should be congratulated for sticking up for
public services and their principles.”
