New Royal Mail strike announced

Royal Mail workers will stage a second 24-hour walkout over pay and jobs, their union has said.

The strike will begin at 1900 BST on 12 July and will end the following day , the Communication Workers' Union said.

Last Friday, the CWU led a similar walkout across the UK - the first national postal strike in a decade.

Workers are angry over plans to restructure the company, though Royal Mail argues it has to change in order to compete with rival firms.

Staff have rejected a 2.5% pay offer and say they are worried that modernisation plans will see jobs cut.

FFS i'm still waiting for items sent 2 weeks ago, and items sent last Friday havent arrived either, so they shouldnt get paid more unless the service is good

And they should get a pay rise, but they should work for it so its a vicious circle.

I won't post anything now, holding back all my payments and blaming the PO - well they don't know do they :giggle:
