Postal workers poised to launch fresh strikes

Members of the Communication Workers Union (CWU) in areas including the Midlands, London, Yorkshire, Bristol and Northern Ireland will walk out throughout the coming week in a long-running row over jobs, pay and services.

The union has accused Royal Mail of cutting pay and jobs - leading to worse services - without agreement, in breach of a deal which ended the last national strike two years ago.

The company has denied the claims and maintains that the union is going back on an agreement to modernise the service.

The CWU is planning to ballot all its postal members next month for a national strike following several weeks of localised action.

The series of 24-hour strikes this week will hit Coventry, Leamington Spa, Nottingham, Stoke on Trent and London on Monday; Birmingham, Coventry, London, Essex, Peterborough, Bristol and Leeds on Wednesday; Peterborough on Thursday and Friday; and Boston and Carrick Fergus on Saturday.

The strikes in Nottingham, Leeds and Carrick Fergus will be the first in these areas since the 2007 national dispute.

And hopefully there will be more job cuts affecting the moaning, lazy, good-for-nothing SCUM aka postal workers, when the Royal Mail lose even more contracts etc as a result of this.

We are in the midst of the worst jobs crisis for years, the Royal Mail are already struggling as it is, don't they realise that by striking, they gain nothing - except to push more and more companies away from using Royal Mail. Corps need reliable services, not services that are affected by strikes everytime Jim at the sorting office stamps his feet and spits his dummy out.

There are 2.5 million unemployed people who would happily do their jobs!! Sack the fkin lot of them I say and get people who actually want the jobs working there.

if you put a dog in the wallasey office 2 years ago you would have been done by animal rights as it was too small had no window that opened and no fire exits the company made their lives hell and treat them like shit i'd like to see the idiots who think theyre doing this for no reason try and do the job for a week without having atleast 3 work related injurys caused by the lack of health and safety, 1 long lasting health problem and stress, actual stress not i have to wait til cathy comes back from her break til i can go stuff my face its so unfair bull and lets not forget the legion airs decease the water had in there those people work themselves ill and still go in, they go out in all kinds of weather carry overloaded bags of 45kgs+ and never bring up the fact that your monthly porn fell out the shoddy discrete packaging and no i aint worked in royal mail but ive seen what goes on inside and out of that building so i have the right to say this

I hope they all get sacked, plenty of people who will be more than happy to work.

They should stand back and take a look at the state of the country (and the future of the Royal Mail) and be thankful that they have jobs to go to.

Nobody is forcing them to go to work and there is no shortage of applicants, if they don't like the job, they should move on and let those that have families to support and mortgages to pay, and who are struggling to find work, do the work instead.
