More strikes on the horizon as union ballots over Royal Mail postman pay row


The union representing staff at Royal Mail have said they will hold a ballot that could lead to even more strike action over pay, adding to the rail and tube mayhem seen this week.

The dispute is centred around worker pay. Royal Mail, which blamed the Communication Workers Union (CWU) for threatening its ability to hit profit targets in May, said it had offered a 5.5 per cent pay rise for CWU-grade workers.

Despite this being one of the biggest pay hikes in years, the CWU rejected the terms and said upcoming ballot results would determine whether they will take industrial action and strike.
