Workers at newly privatised Royal Mail postal service voted on Wednesday to strike for 24 hours on November 4 if they cannot reach agreement with the firm on pay and working conditions.

The management of Royal Mail, which listed on the London stock market in a high profile float last week, had expected a vote in favour of strike action and criticised the prospect of a disruption to services in the run-up to Christmas, its busiest time.
