Thousands Of Post Office Staff To Strike
Thousands of Post Office staff will walk out on strike on 31 October 2016 in a dispute over jobs, pensions and closures.
The dispute affects 3,500 Post Office staff working in Crown post offices, admin and supply chain roles across the UK. Strike action was strongly supported on 15 September and CWU members were joined by Post Office managers who are members of Unite.
Dave Ward, CWU general secretary, said:
Staff and the public are seeing little more than a glorified closure programme from the Post Office and it cannot survive by simply cutting costs. We are calling for the government as the owner of the Post Office to step in, halt the cuts and work with us to develop a proper strategy that will secure the future of the service."
