Royal Mail managers to strike over proposed job and pay cuts
Royal Mail managers will strike later this month over proposed job and pay cuts, as trade union leaders accused the UK postal service of putting profits ahead of customer service. Unite said Royal Mail managers would also "Work to rule" - adhering strictly to contract terms - from July 15-19. Royal Mail said there were "No grounds for industrial action . . . We committed to protecting pay for all managers who stay with Royal Mail, and the vast majority have seen an increase in their earnings." Royal Mail noted that the strike was by managers and would not involve the workers who collect, process and deliver post. In May, Royal Mail said group revenue for the year to March was 0.6 per cent higher year on year at £12.7bn, driven by the performance of parcel sorting subsidiary GLS. However, revenue from its UK postal service dropped 1.6 per cent year on year as delivery volumes fell after pandemic curbs were eased.
