Strike ballot opens 14th sept. Closes 3rd oct. Then they have to give notice of a strike so its looking like a strike over christmas which will hit profits badly.

Theyre stuck between a rock and a hard place. If they give in to the union then they wont make any profit but if they dont then a strike will destroy the business.

Yep. So it seems its all the trustees fault. Ive just gone to cash with a pension investment i made in 2010. It was 85% invested in shares and In 7 years its gone up 400% .

I don't think anybody has ever invested in gilts for the yield, one invests in gilts for the security.

The size of pension investment required to generate £10k a year from gilts. You see the problem Cancun! Now take your problem to the Bank of England and ask for the interest rate to be increased. All pensioners and savers in the UK will fall at your feet if you can pull that one off

If there's a strike the only thing the public will be kicking is the postman for not delivering their parcels.

'I don't believe the company should be punished for low investment returns from investing in bonds.' - but the employees should, right? 'I thought ADVFN was supposed to be about investment. This is a weird thread!!' - are we discussing anything other than Royal Mail and its prospects? Royal Mail pension is in surplus, compare it to BT's £7bn deficit. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/05/27/bt-cap-pension-pots-fill-14bn-hole/ Royal Mail CEO has £200,000, roughly 20% paid into pension fund, latest offer is 11% to employees who have a scheme in surplus, never mind a massive defickt like BT. Don't bank on CWU getting no public sympathy? Brexit and Trump prove people are angry and ready to kick back.

Certainly is! Probably because it used to be in public ownership. Four years ago now though - how time flies.

Cancun... thanks for the links link you provided from 2016 hTtp://moderninvestor.com/news/graph-of-the-week-10-best-and-worst-funded-uk-corporate-pension-schemes/a967564 The problem is future accrual post March 2018. Return on investments historically have been good for Royal Mail as it has 87% of pension investments in bonds. Yields on current bonds are too low to match payouts post March 2018 hTtp://moderninvestor.com/news/graph-of-the-week-the-uk-company-pension-funds-with-biggest-bond-exposures/a953211 So basically the pension fund is run very conservatively trying to match future pension payouts to bond returns. It has been great for the trustees in past years because the bonds were bought at higher rates. However bonds expire or are rolled over at lower yields and new pension contributions keep rolling in. Going forwards, bond returns are too low to match the defined benefits promised when bond rates were 5%+. As any building society saver will know, current yields are a pathetic shadow of what could be achieved on the same capital 10 years ago before Gordon Brown and the Bank of England started quantitative easing. If the return on investment has collapsed, it follows that the payout on future pensions has to be trimmed. The pension trustees could take higher investment risk to try achieve better investment returns...for example equities, but then workers can take that risk through the defined contribution pension route where a few investment options are available to workers depending on risk tolerance. I don't believe the company should be punished for low investment returns from investing in bonds. If it takes industrial action for the company to get that message across, fine. But the CWU will not win and will get zero sympathy from the public. I thought ADVFN was supposed to be about investment. This is a weird thread!!

Interesting that rm offered to pay an Extra £50 m a year into the pension but the trustee said they didnt need to as it was un surplus.

'Is it preferable to be the worst funded then?' Another one we're not supposed to take seriously? I don't think those are the only two options.

Is it preferable to be the worst funded then? The yield is high because the share price is low.

Best funded pension in the ftse? You guessed it, Royal Mail:http://moderninvestor.com/news/graph-of-the-week-10-best-and-worst-funded-uk-corporate-pension-schemes/a9675649th highest yield in ftse too:http://www.dividenddata.co.uk/dividendyield.py?market=ftse100Royal Mail can afford to pay more in to avoid strike action.

put yourself in charge. object is to give workers the best deal you can and preserve jobs. At the same time you must reward the owners who have invested their money, shareholders, with a steady dividend and modest capital growth. You start with last years profit of £335m. How much extra do you think can be afforded on pensions and wages whilst still keeping the company competitive and healthy to preserve jobs?
