I spoke to an activist from North Lancashire and Cumbria CWU branch, where the unit reps' committee voted to recommend a 'no vote'. The major reason that the committee voted against accepting the deal was the situation it meant for deliveries - a lack of assurances on lengths of walks, and issues to do with delivery workers losing money on door-to-doors.

He said that a problem for the no vote was that there wasn't a clear strategy for what would happen if the membership rejected the deal - "The leadership have made it quite clear that this is it, that there is no 'plan B'. They regard this deal as a strong bargaining position."
