By a postal worker
Royal Mail still want to sell off its Cash Handling & Distribution section. In a ballot of postal workers affected by their union, The Communication Workers Union, there was a 95% yes vote for strike action.
This sell-off would be the most significant privatisation in the Post Office so far and has huge implications for all postal workers. Under the sell-off plan workers would not have the option to revert to Operational Postal Grades, take early retirement or even leave under the a new redundancy package.
