Isle of Man could see a post strike

Issue No. 2239

Postal workers on the Isle of Man are this week voting on strikes for “the first time in living memory”, the Communication Workers Union says.

The union, which represents 250 workers on the island, is seeking a pay rise but post office bosses say they intend to continue their pay freeze.

The CWU’s Terry Pullinger said, “Postal workers in the Isle of Man have now had enough. Unless the company comes back with an offer, we’ll be looking at industrial action.”
