Post office workers go on strike in UK

The Communications Workers Union (CWU) called on its members in charge of collecting, sorting and delivering packages and letters to strike on August 31 and September 8 and 9, 2022.

In this sense, the organization lamented the interruption that the protest “probably causes them. We want to assure you that we will do everything we can to minimize disruption and get our services back to normal as quickly as possible.”

Postal workers reject the 2 percent increase offered by the company founded in 1516 by King Henry VIII. This situation occurs despite the fact that the employees were classified as essential during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Similarly, the telecommunications company BT Group plc and the communication agency ReachUK Media have joined the protests to demand better wages given the large profits received by bosses and shareholders.

All companies giving bumper payouts to bosses & shareholders. ��
