DISPUTE UPDATE: PLEASE GIVE THIS MESSAGE THE WIDEST POSSIBLE CIRCULATION:
> royal mail is claiming that we walked away from talks. This is not true.
> It is also not true that there was an agreement. The union submitted a set
> of proposals yesterday morning that royal mail had still not responded to
> at 5 last night - in fact they still have not responded to those
> proposals. There is no split on the pec. They are 100% behind the
> industrial action. Royal mail are still insisting that we sign up to a
> pre xmas no strike deal. They are also still refusing to compromise on any
> of the issues at the heart of the dispute. Royal mail are likely to
> continue with their lies over the next few days to try and undermine the
> union and paint us in the worse possible light. We will keep you updated
> on the real facts.
