POSTAL workers’ union the CWU has formally lodged an appeal against a High-Court ruling banning 110,000 postal workers from going on strike.
The union is seeking to overturn last week’s injunction against strike action at Royal Mail, which was granted despite more than 97 per cent of CWU members voting for action on a 75.9 per cent turnout.
The dispute is focused on workers’ concerns over the casualisation of the Royal Mail and the potential undermining of pensions and conditions.
CWU general secretary Dave Ward told the Morning Star: “Appealing this decision is the right thing to do. Not only for our members but for all workers.
“After the outrage of last week we have moved quickly onto the next phase of our dispute.
“We have prepared a letter to all shareholders, will be holding a national briefing of our representatives and on Friday we have called a union meeting in every office. We shall not be moved.”
