Royal Mail staff likely to strike over Christmas hours

Royal Mail workers may strike over the issue of Christmas working hours.
According to The Independent newspaper, management and the Communication Workers Union are at loggerheads over Christmas Day.
The paper quoted an insider who said: “The 25 December is a Saturday so the bank holiday is transferred to Monday. Royal Mail is saying that Christmas Day is not a bank holiday – it’s a non-service day – and we don’t get a day off for it. The hours have got to be put back.”
Industrial action is likely if the two sides cannot agree.
