Post Office staff agree to national strike tomorrow

The Communication Workers Union (CWU) has announced yet another nationwide strike in a dispute over closures, jobs, and pay.

Staff will close tills at 12:30pm and many will assemble to march to Portcullis House for an event highlighting the threat to Crown post offices to politicians.


Strike action will take place from 12:30 on Wednesday 17 July. It will affect up to 4,000 staff working in 372 Crown (main) post offices. Post Office staff voted by nine to one (88%) in favour of strike action and have already taken strike action on seven previous occasions: Easter Saturday, 19 and 29 April, 7 and 28 May, 20 June and 29 June.
