Fresh strikes hit Post Office, as management urged to ‘stop the spin and get serious about pay’

FRESH strikes are set to hit the Post Office later month, the Communication Workers Union (CWU) confirmed today as it urged bosses to “stop the spin and get serious on pay.”

Supply chain and administrative workers, who deliver essential supplies and process finances in Britain’s 11,500 subpost offices and smaller Post Office branches, will walk out on Thursday July 14, the union said.

The announcement follows the CWU confirming earlier this week that staff at crown offices, the larger Post Office branches, will withdraw their labour on Monday July 11.

Members are demanding that management at the nationalised company improve on the latest pay offer of just 3 per cent for 2022-23 as the retail price index inflation rate soars to an eye-watering 11.7 per cent.

CWU assistant secretary Andy Furey dismissed the Post Office’s claim last Monday that an agreement could be reached “soon” as “spin.”

“Our message to the employer is: don’t waste our members’ time by misleading statements,” he said.   

“Stop the spin and get serious about pay. Until you do this, the strikes will continue.”
