Burslem delivery office to strike

Issue No. 2038

Postal workers at the Burslem delivery office in the Stoke area are to strike for four days next week in a continuing dispute over disciplinary action.

Last month Burslem workers walked out after one of them was suspended for alleged remarks to a manager.

In response Royal Mail imposed punitive sanctions on the union and has not dealt speedily or adequately enough with the disciplinary action.

The strike begins next Wednesday at 12.01am and continues until Saturday at 1pm. Burslem workers deserve full support.
