Communications Workers' Union (CWU) media comment


We are aware that in recent media interviews, Dave Ward, the General Secretary of the CWU has indicated that we are in "secret talks" with a private equity investment group, he believes, regarding a takeover of Royal Mail. The Company wishes to make clear that this is not true. We are involved in no such talks.
