Newly Privatized Royal Mail Carriers Ready to Strike

Workers for Newly Privatized Royal Mail Ready to Strike

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.
