Royal Mail bonus fear
Speculation has been mounting that Royal Mail is to make a statement on its finances which could lead to thousands of postal workers not receiving a bonus they were expecting.
The move could come as early as today alongside a warning that Royal Mail's share of the postal market was falling.
Postal workers have been waiting for news about the expected payout, with some saying it was worth several hundred pounds.
Neither Royal Mail nor the Communication Workers' Union would make any comment.
