CWU says agreement with Consignia could be made next week

The postal workers’ union is still
to reach an agreement with Consignia over plans to cut 30,000 jobs over the
next three years.

This morning, the Financial
Times
said the deal would be completed today.

However, CWU spokesman Chris
Proctor said, "A decision has to be made some time next week.".

The agreement aims to keep the 30,000
redundancies voluntary. It is claimed Consignia will face £400 million in
redundancy and relocation costs.
