How many people will blame the Post Office workers, rather than their employers?

Thousands of Post Office workers and managers will stage a fresh strike [today – October 31] in a dispute over jobs, pensions and branch closures.

Members of the Communication Workers Union and Unite will walk out for the second time in two months, with further action in the run-up to Christmas not ruled out.

The unions are in dispute over the closure of the final salary pension scheme, job losses and the franchising of Crown Post Offices, the larger branches usually sited in high streets.

The Post Office said most of its network of thousands of branches will not be affected by the industrial action.

The dispute affects thousands of staff working in Crown offices, administration and supply chain roles across the UK, and the strike follows a walkout in September which the unions said was strongly supported.
