IoD pans Royal Mail strike vote

Suzie Neuwirth
THE INSTITUTE of Directors yesterday hit out at an upcoming Royal Mail workers’ vote on strike action, saying a strike would be “unjustified, highly irresponsible and would hit businesses hard”.

The Communication Workers Union yesterday said it will ballot for a national postal strike on 20 September, unless disputes regarding pay and the impact of possible privatisation on job security are resolved. A £3bn float is expected this Autumn.
