Royal Mail Strike Called Off


Royal Mail Strike Cancelled  Good news for online shoppers and online retailers in the UK РThe Royal Mail postal strike that was planned for next Monday 4th November 2013 has been cancelled.  As we approach the busiest time of year for Christmas shopping, a one day strike would have caused mass disruption for many UK online retailers and etailers. The strike would have also resulted in delays and backlogs of thousands of parcels.

In a joint statement from the Communication Workers Union (CWU) and Royal Mail they have announced that progress has been made in coming closer to an agreement. Items include, a separate pensions agreement, improved pay and reward offer, workload issues and legal protections for employees. Click here to view the full statement from Royal Mail.
