Stoke postal workers strike til New Year

No primary category set

Workers at the Burslem postal depot have voted to go on strike until January 2nd. The depot handles post for 32,000 homes and businesses in the ST6 area, but Royal Mail have said that 200 bosses have been drafted in to handle deliveries.

The strike is the latest action in a long-running dispute between workers at the depot and management, over the suspension of nine colleagues. The Communication Workers’ Union have said that the complaints against the delivery workers were “spurious”, and have condemned RM’s refusal to take their cases to an independent national appeals’ panel.

In seperate action, postal workers in Alderley Edge are to strike on Christmas Eve, in protest at the closure of the village’s delivery office and forced relocation to Wilmslow. 2,000 residents have signed a petition condemning the plan, and union leaders have criticised Royal Mail for putting “the pursuit of hard cash before all else”.

  1. Sack the lot of them!…I have never understood strikes, if you’re in a crap job or the pay is too low or the hours are too long….GET ANOTHER JOB!!! Or better still, start a business and earn some real money. I’m fed up with people like the post and teachers etc holding the country to ransom, look what happened to the miners when they did this.
