Royal Mail union to ballot 100,000 workers on strike action
Members of the Communication Workers Union will vote in late September, with the result due on 8 October. Royal Mail said it was "Committed" to engaging with the union. Strikes at the privatised postal service were averted last year after Royal Mail agreed to raise pay, reform pensions and reduce weekly working hours from 39 to 35 by 2022, subject to productivity improvements. Royal Mail has said it is abiding by the agreement and has awarded two pay rises since last year. If workers vote to strike it could lead to tens of thousands of staff walking out.
