UK Post Office managers’ strike call

UK Post Office managers’ strike call

The union Unite has announced that Post Office managers have called for a strike to take place on 31 October. In statement sent to Post&Parcel today (24 October), Unite said: “The 736 managers, members of Unite, the country’s largest union, will be striking for 24 hours from 03:00 on 31 October, along with the Communication Workers Union (CWU), in the dispute embracing pensions, job losses and the franchising of Crown post offices.”

Unite warned that there could be more strikes in the run-up to Christmas, “causing severe disruption at this peak time of the year”.

Unite officer for the Post Office Brian Scott said: “Our members were angered at the announcement earlier this month that Post Office management has requested the pension scheme’s trustees close the scheme from the end of March 2017.”

Unite’s Post Office managers first took 24 hours of strike action on 15 September. They had voted by 64% for strike action with 78% supporting industrial action short of a strike. There are 11,500 post offices across the UK.
