Royal Mail Bosses prevent 2 day strike in February through legal challenge

The Communication Workers Union (CWU) has called off a  two-day strike by Royal Mail postal workers, planned for 16-17 February due to a  legal challenge by Royal Mail.

In a newsletter to members, the Communication Workers Union (CWU) explained the cancellation saying “given the laws in this country are heavily weighted against working people, the risks of losing in court may potentially impact on the re-ballot – we simply cannot allow this happen”.

The letter did not detail the nature of the challenge but insisted lawyers “have advised that we could defend our position in court”.

The CWU’s 115,000 members employed by Royal Mail are being balloted over another six-month mandate for strike action. The ballot concludes on Feb 16.

CWU members in Royal Mail staged 18 days of walkouts in the second half of 2022 over pay, jobs and conditions.
