The Last Post

It would seem that the post office workers are determined to drive the final nail into the coffin of Royal Mail, the Times reports that they are gearing up for a series of strikes.

Royal Mail has suffered two national walkouts in the clash over pay and modernisation, and more strike dates are likely to be set tomorrow. The CWU could escalate the action beyond the one-day walkouts that it has called so far, or it may stage a series of regional strikes.

Given that Royal Mail suffers from a lousy reputation re lost letters, outdated working practices, fuddy duddy post offices and stiff competition from the "wired world"/professional delivery companies this strike action is the last thing that it needs.

The customers will simply vote with their feet and walk.
