I'm seriously losing patience with this strike now. So many items held up because Mr Postie can't accept that getting paid for 42 hours a week means working 42 hours a week - and not starting at 5am and knocking off at 11am!! OK, theres some ground to be given on both sides, but the sooner the workers realise that Royal Mail is simply seeking to impose working/pension conditions on their staff that already affect everybody else the better. When Royal Mail goes down the pan permanently - and it won't take long - there will be a whole lot more than 40,000 looking for work. You've already lost major contracts like Amazon, so use some sense and accept this isn't the 1970's, and if you want to keep your job - GO BACK TO WORK!!!!!!!!!!
