Charlie Kimber is right about how solid the postal workers' dispute has been (The Politics of the Post Strike, Socialist Review, November 2007).
However since the commencement of the ballot, not unsurprisingly, both the CWU leadership and management have been pushing the deal. Management even put a new letter on our frames offering us £350 on 14 December if the deal is ratified. Billy Hayes even sent out a pathetic "Please support us" postcard. Things must be desperate.
