Hundreds of Merseyside postal workers on strike





AROUND 800 postal workers went on strike in Liverpool yesterday as the latest round of industrial action got under way.

No deliveries were made in the L1 to L8 postal districts as workers at the city’s postal headquarters in Copperas Hill joined the national action by the Communication Workers Union (CWU).

Deliveries will be made as normal across Merseyside today as the rolling programme of industrial action affects other parts of the postal service.

But there will be no deliveries made in the L9 to L39 districts or in Wirral when delivery and collection staff take action on Saturday.

Nationally, there was a further threat of longer walkouts next month.

The CWU’s postal executive held off naming new strike dates as efforts were made to resume peace talks, which collapsed on Wednesday night.

CWU leader Billy Hayes said there was “every prospect” industrial action will now be stepped up, while the union is still considering whether to take legal action over Royal Mail’s move to hire 30,000 agency workers to deal with the post backlog.

Dockers, Car Workers, Miners, Mailmen. Will anyone ever learn? If there's no workers then there's no bosses to boss them either so nobody dips in. We have the richest language in the world apparently and yet they can't find a form of any of them to agree to. It's pathetic.

Can you see the irony in the fact that 'The Communications Unions' are trying to get their point heard but not many people are interested wink
