Royal Mail managers to deliver post if strike goes ahead

Royal
Mail managers will help sort and deliver the some of the post in event of a
national strike.

As
the Communication Workers Union (CWU) prepares to ballot 160,000 staff for the
first national postal strike in seven years over pay, up to 15,000 managers in
Royal Mail’s letters operation are preparing to reduce the impact of industrial
action by delivering mail themselves.

They
are expected to concentrate on special delivery services, the most profitable
time-guaranteed facility.

A
spokeswoman from Royal Mail said that if something upset the normal processes,
then all the staff were prepared to ‘muck in’ to do the best job they could.
