Royal Mail staff call off planned strike action

Planned strikes by Royal Mail workers in the next two weeks have been called off after a challenge by the firm. Royal Mail has blamed strike action for rising losses and job cuts, as well as lower volumes of parcels being posted. Royal Mail confirmed that the CWU had withdrawn planned strike action originally planned for 2, 3, 4, 8, 9 and 10 November. "The CWU has withdrawn strike action following Royal Mail writing to CWU to highlight numerous material concerns with the formal notification of planned rolling strike action," a spokesperson said. Royal Mail said strike action cost the business £70m during the first half of its financial year, leading to an operating loss of £219m, compared to a £235m profit last year.
