Post Office workers to strike over pay

Members of the Communication Workers Union at 114 Crown Post Offices - the larger branches often sited on high streets - will walk out on 11 July.It will be the third strike by Post Office workers this year, with the union saying members rejected a pay offer it said was worth 3% and a £500 lump sum. The Post Office workers are the latest to go on strike over pay, with workers and unions pushing for pay rises to cope with the higher cost of living. Thousands of RMT Union railway workers walked out last week over pay and hundreds of British Airways workers at Heathrow Airport have also voted to go on strike over their wages. A strike already took place at the start of May.The union branded the Post Office's pay offer as "Massive real-terms pay cut" and Mr Furey said there was "More than enough money for a reasonable pay rise" for workers. The Post Office said it was "Disappointed" by the planned strike but was "Hopeful" of reaching a pay agreement soon.
