Leaked letter from Brendan Barber to Dave Ward


“TUC, 12th October 2007

Dear Dave

CWU/RM Dispute

I am writing to confirm the outcome of the negotiations conducted over recent days under my chairmanship.

I attach the two proposed agreements resulting from the talks covering firstly pay and modernisation and secondly pensions.

As you know these texts represent the culmination of an immensely detailed and protracted negotiating process and need to be considered as final and open to no further amendment.

It has also been understood and accepted by both parties that both agreements need to be concluded simultaneously. If one should not prove acceptable then both agreements will fall.

I hope that both parties are able to confirm to me urgently their acceptance of these agreements.

I am grateful for everyone’s patience and co-operation in this protracted negotiation.

Yours sincerely,

Brendan Barber.
