It looks likely that we are going to be lumbered with a post strike this Christmas.
The Communication Workers Union (CWU) claims that it is confident that its 120,000 members voting on the ballot will support industrial action, the results are expected at 12:30 today.
Billy Hayes, the CWU's general secretary, said that workers had little choice.
No one is forcing them to go on strike.
As I have noted before, there are many alternatives to the Royal Mail. This action will result in future job losses for those who strike, as they push the Royal Mail into oblivion.
