A three-day postal strike is underway as talks between the
Communications Workers Union and Royal Mail failed to reach
agreement last night. The strike began at 4am this morning, and
up to 120,000 postal workers are believed to be involved. For
those hoping this is the last of the strikes, the Guardian has bad news. It quotes the
union’s general secretary Billy Hayes as saying: “We will be
upping the dispute. We will not be scaling it down. There is
every prospect that we will increase the action and we could be
looking at longer strikes”.
