Royal Mail workers to stage another two-day strike in pay dispute
Members of the Communication Workers Union were already preparing to walk out on Thursday and Friday this week but they have added two further days of strike action.
Mrs H and I were chatting about this only a few days ago. Times change and we've barely noticed the two previous one day Royal Mail strikes. They made so little impact on us that I had to look up when those two days were.
Looking back, maybe we had a little less junk mail shoved through the letterbox, but if the strike had not made the headlines we wouldn't have known about it at all. There are two more strikes planned for tomorrow and Friday apparently.
Maybe the junk mail will mount up and we'll notice when the strikes are over and a little heap of it ends up on the doormat. Or maybe not. Times change.
