Our main aims are - to try to keep workers informed, to help communication across different sectors, to help spread the struggle, to help workers fight more effectively, to help us win, and to record information about how the struggle progresses to pass on lessons to other workers in the future.
We want to get the bulletin out to as many people as possible, and we need your help. This first issue is aimed at postal workers. Future issues might be aimed at civil servants, local government workers, etc.
Our main targets for distribution this time will be big District Offices (DOs), which can have thousands of workers, but also if these have been done, secondary targets include picket lines, Sub-Delivery Offices (SDOs), post offices, post boxes, CWU demonstrations, then other public sector workers, and anyone else.
Depending on responses we can pay for some to be printed, but for now we're mostly planning on using DIY photocopies or printouts from PDF.
Are you or your organisation interested? If so, which area are you in? Can you or your group take responsibility for certain areas/offices? Do you have a newsletter? If so can you include the bulletin in your mailout?
We're trying to co-ordinate this mostly on the libcom forums: http://libcom.org/forums/organise/dispatch-distributing-public-sector-pay-struggle-bulletin-help-needed-05082007
So please feed back here. Alternatively you can email us at
We can help to get details like DO addresses, and if you can't help distribute them libcom needs assistance with reporting the disputes online so if you have the time to help out do get in touch!
Please also forward this appeal to anyone or any websites/message boards where people may find it useful.
