Workers to strike over Royal Mail

POSTAL workers are to stage a one-day strike after voting 4-1 in favour of walk-outs over issues linked to the controversial privatisation of Royal Mail. Members of the Communication Workers Union (CWU) will stage a walk-out on November 4 after backing industrial action by 78%. The union said it will consider further action and announced an escalation, with a new ballot which will enable postal workers to boycott competitors' mail.
