Bristol postal workers stage third strike in overtime battle

Postal workers in Bristol are holding a third day of official strike action today after a cut in overtime.

Communication Workers’ Union (CWU) members took action on 15 and 26 August after contractual overtime was cut at Easton’s Royal Mail depot.

Managers have been brought in as cover during the walkout. The Royal Mail said it could not justify the normal scheduled overtime as there was less post over the summer.

The union warned that the strike could cause severe disruption to deliveries and collections in several areas of the city.
