Royal Mail Srike Planned For 22.10.09/23.10.09

Despite the fact that a number of localised strikes have been occurring on a regular basis over the last few months, the official union strike at Royal Mail is set to start on Thursday, 22 October. There will be a number of strikes between 22nd of October and the Christmas period which are ultimately designed to wreak the greatest havoc and cause maximum impact. However, the Royal Mail management have again today requested further meetings with the unions and demanded that the strikes are called off ahead of talks.

I suppose it's so each can blame the others if their respective action fails. Wink  Roll eyes

A valiant attempt there Steve to bring the thread back on-topic! I think a record must have been broken earlier - sent off-topic by the first reply...
