POSTAL workers in Fenland and West Norfolk will be taking two more days of strike action in the coming week.

The postal workers union today announced all delivery officers and the Peterborough Mail Centre will be on strike from 3am on Friday for 24 hours and for 24 hours from 3am next Monday.

Further to the industrial action that took place from 29th October to 31st October 2009 the CWU has announced the following dates for further industrial action:

"This will mean that there will be no deliveries of mail in the PE postcode area on either day," said Adrian Oakes, area delivery representative for the Communications Workers' Union.

"The CWU will continue to take part in talks at the TUC, with the aim of reaching an agreement that will allow us to call off the planned industrial action. However the CWU believe that any agreement must protect the future service to the public and members terms and conditions.

"Despite Royal Mails claims of up to 25% of staff working during the latest industrial action, the CWU believe that this figure is false, with staff on annual leave, day off or sick leave being counted as being at work by Royal Mail.
