The CWU has orchestrated a 24-hour strike today, 11th July, over pay. Post Office workers in main branches of Post Office premises are seeking an improvement in the 3 per cent pay rise offered by the Post Office for 2022/3 – an offer which also included a £500 lump sum payment.
A further strike is scheduled for 14th July. This will see Post Office supply chain and administrative staff called out in a move which will impact the services delivered from sub-post office branches.
CWU assistant secretary Andy Furey said: “The blame for this disruption lies entirely with the senior Post Office leadership, who have repeatedly failed – and wilfully refused – to set out a sensible and fair pay agreement.”
Further action has been threatened.
