Posties back action
9:00am Saturday 7th September 2013 in News
Postal workers have voted in favour of industrial action over the sacking of two postmen.
Sixty-five Oxford East Delivery Office Communication Workers Union members backed action, compared with 20 against.
The action was called following the dismissals over what Royal Mail said was “wilful delay of mail”.
County union branch secretary Chad Croom said its members would discuss the next step, which could be “anything up to and including strike action”.
Mr Croom said he hoped this could be avoided through assurances that staff would not be treated in a similar way again.
Royal Mail spokesman Mike Norman said the move was “disappointing” but was hopeful the issue could be resolved.
