Postal Workers at Copperas Hill mail centre in LIverpool, which is earmarked for closure, refused to cross a picket line put up by striking Romec engineers on Monday of this week.

The engineers were taking strike action over changes to their working conditions, which would see many forced to work on Saturdays for no additional pay.

One engineer told Socialist Worker, “I paint pillar boxes, and they are forcing us to work until 10pm Monday to Saturday. How am I supposed to paint pillar boxes in the dark?”
