Escalating the strike is the best way for postal workers to win. CWU rep Mick Chambers, from Chiswick delivery office in west London, speaks for many when he says that the union must increase the tempo of the action.
He told Socialist Worker. “We should have a one week strike of everyone followed by a three-day rolling programme of action. We cannot allow Royal Mail to tie us down in negotiations through the Christmas period because we’ll lose our advantage.”
