Strike negotiations news: London Postal workers vote in favour of strikes

CWU members have voted in favour of industrial action.

25 May 2011

London Postal workers signed up to the Communication Workers Union (CWU) have voted in favour of initiating industrial action.

Negotiation strategies may be being formulated by the government, after members of the organisation set out plans to shut three mail centres and one delivery office in London.

The strikes are taking place as a protest against concerns that Royal Mail closures will lead to compulsory redundancies.

Martin Walsh, divisional representative for the CWU, claimed that plans by the state-owned postal organisation to close a number of its facilities contain "a clear threat" to employees.

"London postal workers have sent a clear message to Royal Mail in this ballot that they will not be bullied or intimidated by the company," he said.

In a move that could prompt union bargaining, 79 per cent of CWU members voted in favour of industrial action.

This comes shortly after RMT rejected the latest pay offer from London Underground during strike negotiations.
