Post Office workers Strike

Dispute over pay

Post Office workers have launched a fresh strike in a dispute over pay.

Members of the Communication Workers Union (CWU) at Crown Post Offices – the larger branches often sited on high streets – walked out on Saturday.

Union members in administration and supply chain networks will strike on Monday.

It is the second bout of industrial action since the dispute flared and the union is not ruling out further strikes.

The CWU said all 114 Crown Post Offices will close on Saturday, warning that the supply chain strike will mean there will be no cash collections or deliveries to post offices on Monday.

The union said Post Office management are insisting on a pay freeze for 2021-22 and a “marginally improved” pay offer for 2022.
