Ipswich mail centre workers struck on Tuesday of last week against cuts that would see an astonishing 17 percent reduction in hours.

Processing, distribution and deliveries on the day, late and night shifts each went on strike for three hours.

Ipswich mail centre was flooded with management from all over the eastern region and London with some bosses donating their “services” for free.

However, the strike was solid with only a few non-union members continuing to work.

It now seems likely that the bosses will push ahead with the changes on 10 August. But if this does happen, the CWU is determined to fight.

At present the course of action to be adopted is unspecified.

However, it is hoped that some sort of co-ordination between all the mail centres in the eastern region will be part of any fightback
