Royal Mail wins strike injunction

Royal Mail has won an injunction in London's High Court preventing next week's 48-hour strike. The company said the strike would be "Unlawful" if the Communication Workers Union did not follow dispute resolution procedures. A strike ballot of the CWU's 110,000 members had produced an 89.1% vote in favour on a 73.7% turnout. It would have been the first national strike since Royal Mail was privatised four years ago. Mr Justice Supperstone, who granted the injunction, said: "I consider the strike call to be unlawful and the defendant is obliged to withdraw its strike call until the external mediation process has been exhausted."
