Post Office staff to strike on Monday
10:57am Friday 27th September 2013 in News
STAFF at the town centre Post Office will strike on Monday as a long running row over job losses and pay continues.
Post Office bosses say they intend for the branch in the Old Marketplace to remain open. It has done so on previous strikes.
Information will be displayed on any delays to services.
CWU, the union for communications staff, has organised the industrial action over staff cuts, branch closures and a pay freeze.
It is the 12th strike this year.
Dave Ward, CWU deputy general secretary, said: "If the Post Office thinks this dispute will simply fade away they are sadly mistaken.
“Our members are fiercely opposed to the company's plans.”
The Post Office says it is facing 'overall' losses, and has made a fair offer of cash payments based on reaching targets to staff.
Kevin Gilliland, network and sales director at the Post Office, said: “Strike action can only cost our people money, cause disruption to customers and threaten our plans to turn the business around and keep our branches on high streets and in city centres.
The CWU says the Post Office made £94million in profit last year, with £15.4million paid in bonuses to senior staff.
