Counters staff prepare to fight

Issue No. 2239

Almost 4,000 workers at crown post offices across Britain are being balloted for strikes in a dispute over pay, job security and the future of the post office network.

Despite increased profits of £72 million last year, Post Office bosses are pleading poverty and refusing to consider a pay rise for counter staff.

The company is also refusing to extend a guarantee on the number of crown offices, which implies that further closures are being planned. The ballot closes on 4 March.
