Around
160,000 postal workers are to be balloted after unions accused the Royal Mail
of shutting down pay negotiations.

Union

According
to reports, HR director Tony McCarthy spent more than an hour with Acas, but
the postal executive of the Communication Workers Union failed to meet with
him.

If
the strike goes ahead, it will be the first postal strike in seven years.
