UNION members at the Post Office have voted in favour of strike action over cuts to jobs, services and staff pensions, the Communications Workers Union has said.

The union said the Post Office was “on the path to extinction” as the ballot saw an overwhelming majority of 83.2% vote in favour of industrial action.

Dave Ward, CWU general secretary, said: “Staff in the Post Office face 2,000 job losses this year, the closure of their pension scheme and a strategy of slash and burn from the board of the company.

“The Post Office is at crisis point and the Government has to step in.”
