More than 115,000 postal workers at Royal Mail are set to strike following the result of a ballot announced yesterday (19 July), while the postal operator has reported an 11.5% drop in sales in Q1, as it holds its 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM) today.
The Communication Workers Union (CWU), which represents Royal Mail Group workers, has voted by 97.6%, on a 77% turnout, to take action. This represents the biggest mandate for strike action ever reached since the 2016 Trade Union Act was implemented.
The union is demanding that Royal Mail group enters into negotiations to secure a “straight, no-strings” pay increase for workers.
