    Default Postal Strike

    When will it end?!

    I ordered a new set of plates that were dispatched on Friday but delayed due to the strike.

    Haven't seen a postie since last Tuesday!!!

    nope.... he's well down on his take home..

    he miss's bonus's as well.. so he's only getting 60% of his monthly money...all because some union guy has pulled them out on strike..

    I'm ok, it's padded in here I'm quite used to being in padded rooms

    As for the strike, nobody ever gets back the money they loose whilst out!

    Forget all talk of pay rise's for these guys n girls...Royal mail have introduced new working practice's which, even after any new pay settlement, will leave the average postie £110 a month worse off for doing the same job...

    Yes, i miss my post, but these folks do have to earn a living.. i just wish the union did something different and stop hurting the folks they are supposed to represent..
