No primary category set

If you have parcels going with Royal Mail to the L1 and L3 districts, you need to know that staff there have walked out in a dispute with management, and that a RM spokesman has said this is “affecting deliveries” but that the company are in talks with the Communication Workers’ Union to resolve the matter.

Around 100 staff who moved to Liverpool’s new main delivery centre claim that management have broken promises over working conditions. They accuse RM of withdrawing redundancy offers, and say that “the new building is not fit for purpose”.


Update Saturday
: Workers back working today. Depot hopes to clear any backlog by Monday.

  1. Unofficial Strike? Then unofficially fire them, and get them replaced by people who’d be grateful to have their jobs. Stop moaning and start grafting for a change.

    Next thing they’ll be on strike for is because they no longer get custard creams with their tea in the staff room.

    Noones perfectly happy with their job in any organisation/company, but it doesn’t mean every person out there goes on strike. The world would come to a stand still if we all went on strike.

  2. The strike was partly over cramped space at the new office/depot according to the BBC – Im sure that is just an excuse – why would a brand new building be like that – My guess workers not happy about change as is always the case with RM – Just like elvis says stop maoning about small things and get on with your jobs or quit and get a new job if your not happy.
