Postal staff and local government workers are due to hold a
one-day strike over London Weighting allowances on Thursday (16 Oct).
The 24-hour action by members of the Communication Workers
Union (CWU) and Unison local government members is over a claim for a £4,000
increase in London Weighting. The previous 24-hour strike on 6 October cost the
Royal Mail an estimated £10m.
