ROYAL MAIL FAILS TO DELIVER

POSTAL STRIKES that have crippled the UK looked set to get even worse yesterday, as the CWU union called for a national walkout. The strikes over pay and job cuts, which started in July, have caused a backlog of an estimated 20m letters. Most of the delays are in London, Royal Mail said yesterday. The CWU said it would call off the ballot to strike if management pledged to make no redundancies.
