Dundee postal workers fight job transfer

Issue No. 1989

Dundee postal workers in the east delivery office struck for the second time last Saturday.

The 130 workers are confronting the transfer of full-time jobs to part-time.

Joe Malone, branch secretary of the Scotland No 5 branch which covers Dundee told Socialist Worker, “It was a solid strike with very good levels of picketing from 5am. Management have responded by taking away my facility time – an incredible punishment for an official strike.

“They have also issued a series of demands for eliminating bad practice in the office which, on inspection, is all about actions that management are responsible for, not workers.”
