Royal Mail engineers to vote on dispute deal

Hundreds of engineers who maintain Royal Mail buildings will soon start voting on a proposed deal aimed at ending a long-running industrial dispute over the use of devices to track their working day.

Members of the Communication Workers' Union (CWU) employed by Romec - joint owned by Royal Mail Group and Balfour Beatty Workplace - have been on and operating an overtime ban for months over the use of information from vehicle trackers and hand-held GPS devices.
