  • Negotiating | Communications Workers' Union
    FAQs Jargon Buster Publications General Secretary Circulars eir Circulars An Post Circulars Latest News Forms Connect Journal NERI General Youth Committee Union Post Contact Us Head Office Email Us Our Location Useful Links Welcome About Negotiating Negotiating The CWU successfully negotiates wages and salaries for the majority of workers employed in the Irish communications industry and would be able to do so for you One of the strengths which your CWU negotiators can bring to bear on your behalf is their detailed knowledge of pay rates in the industry As a result we know what the appropriate remuneration is for the work you and your colleagues are carrying out for your employer This is particularly important in workplaces where employers negotiate individual contracts with employees It is not uncommon to find major differences in pay between workers doing exactly the same work in such companies The fact that the CWU knows the rates of pay in the industry and knows how your company is faring financially will help them to ensure that you get a fair deal in your salary cheque Providing Better Packages Wages or salaries should only be one part of a worker s overall remuneration package which should also include pension and sick pay arrangements Unfortunately as recent reports have pointed out too many companies do not honour their responsibilities to their staff in this regard What is nearly worse is that some companies offer such packages to their executive staff but refuse to do so for the rest of their workforce The CWU has successfully negotiated such arrangements with employers for thousands of its members The Union s experience in this regard could be of great benefit to you Democratic Involvement Of course while pay negotiations would be conducted by a full time official on your

  • History | Communications Workers' Union
    a Cork branch Their motive was not particularly nationalistic they simply believed that conditions for Irish postal workers were worse than those in Britain and were best dealt with by an Irish based organisation From 1903 they produced a fine monthly journal the Dual Workers Guardian Printed on Irish Paper the Guardian claimed it guaranteed to have the largest circulation in Ireland of any Service Organ published in the United Kingdom It certainly impacted on other civil service unions and established a long standing achievement of Irish postal trade unionism its ability to lead and influence industrial and political opinion for all public servants The DWA assiduously gathered information regarding pay and conditions and fearlessly put forward claims for improvements They published their submissions as in 1904 when a special Guardian outlined the DWA s demand for improvement in the scandalously low wages This activity attracted new members and in 1904 with sixteen branches in all major centres the union changed its title to the Association of Irish Post Office Clerks AIPOC Their paper the Irish Postal Telegraph Guardian now being printed not just on Irish paper but also with Irish ink The AIPOC developed close fraternal links with British unions both within Ireland and across the channel particularly the Postmen s Federation They gave direct evidence to Parliamentary Committees but relied on their British colleagues to represent their claims at the National Joint Committee The AIPOC lobbied MPs Dublin s Lord Mayor and other well known figures to address the crowds such was the AIPOC s success in persuading public opinion of its cause AIPOC pioneer figures were B C Bergin George Hurley and John Normile courageous men who risked their employment All Officers and Executive members were unpaid and made huge personal sacrifices in running what was now a significant national body Women were well represented particularly in Dublin Telephones Lucy Lawrenson addressed mass rallies in the Mansion House pioneering public activity for women The union sought equal pay for equal work from 1910 a demand decades in advance of the battle for equal pay in the 1960s and 1970s AIPOC activity until 1914 was a slow round of memoranda to the Department lobbying and organising mundane but essential activity that built the union and developed the trade union consciousness The Executive became more and more aware of the wastefulness of sectionalism openly campaigning for an All Grades Irish union The dislocation of war and the continuous rise in the cost of living focused attention elsewhere Energy was put into securing War Bonuses and preventing discriminatory application of these bonuses in Ireland The Irish Postal Union The Easter Rising divided AIPOC members Loyalty to the Service and the fact that many post office employees had army backgrounds generated ambiguous attitudes After 1916 however a more national perspective emerged and in April 1920 the first strike of Irish postal workers took place when the AIPOC supported the General Strike to demand the release of Republican hunger strikers in Mountjoy
