Post workers across much of the West of Scotland walked out on unofficial strike on Friday of last week after management punished drivers at Glasgow mail centre for refusing to cross their colleagues’ picket lines.
Management suspended the pay of six drivers after they refused to sign a statement saying they were prepared to cross official picket lines. In response, the entire mail centre voted to walk out in support.
A senior rep from the Glasgow CWU union told Socialist Worker the strike had “spread like wildfire” across delivery offices and that over 2,000 union members joined the action.
Strikers returned to work on Friday afternoon, but provocations led to further unofficial walkouts later that day and again on Monday of this week.
