Christmas holiday break DELAYS

The last New Worker before the two-week Christmas Break will be out on Friday 23rd December

The despatch of the New Worker will be delayed due to industrial action by postal workers during the week before the Christmas break. Our post will consequently go out on the first working day after Boxing Day.
The Communication Workers Union (CWU) said that the strike in the long running dispute with the Post Office went ahead following the rejection of a union proposal for a structured period of negotiations which would have avoided the Christmas strike action. The union offered to suspend strike action in exchange for the company suspending its Post Office closure / franchising programme in order for meaningful negotiations to take place.
The CWU said support for the industrial action was “magnificent” with around 3,500 post office staff taking part in the strike in the dispute over jobs, pensions and the closure of Crown post offices. CWU general secretary Dave Ward said: “I want our customers to understand, and I believe they do, that our members face the prospect of losing a lot of money in the run-up to Christmas - and that this dispute is fundamentally about them fighting for the future of their industry and the great British post office - in particular its presence on the high street.”
