East Lancashire Royal Mail staff to vote on strike action
2:35pm Friday 27th September 2013 in East Lancashire
POSTAL workers are to start voting on whether to strike in opposition to the Government's controversial plan to privatise the Royal Mail.
The Communication Workers Union was due to send out ballot papers today to more than 100,000 of its members, urging them to back a campaign of industrial action.
Voting will close on October 16, and any strike action would start from a week later.
CWU general secretary Billy Hayes said: “There is still time for this Government to listen to the public, consumers and businesses and user groups, and drop this politically dogma driven sale.”
