The Communication Workers Union has confirmed that nationwide postal strikes will begin on Thursday 22 October. The union said it had no choice but to announce a strike after the Royal Mail rejected its latest set of proposals. This is of course total rubbish. The union is choosing to destroy the Royal Mail. If that’s their attitude then the sooner the whole thing is closed down the better. Let other businesses with workers who wish to provide a service get on with the job and we can all benefit.
On the first day, mail centre staff and network drivers will strike. On Friday 23 October it will be delivery and collection staff.
