Mail strike possible
10:30am Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
OXFORD: The results of a ballot for industrial action over the sacking of two postmen will be announced today.
Oxford East delivery office workers called the ballot after the dismissals over what Royal Mail said was “wilful delay of mail”.
Communication Workers Union (CWU) county branch secretary Chad Croom said he expected the 110 workers to back action. Union officers could opt to strike for the first time since 2009, he said.
Staff cover the city, Witney, Kidlington and Thame.
Meanwhile, the 888 CWU workers across the county will be balloted on a national strike over pay and proposed privitisation.
Action would mean a strike by October 10.
