Arabnews24.ca:Tuesday 9 August 2022 12:51 PM: Royal Mail workers are set to stage four days of strikes in the coming weeks in a dispute over pay.
The Communication Workers Union (CWU) said over 115,000 staff will form the biggest strike of the summer so far to demand a "dignified, proper pay rise".
Walkouts will take place on Friday 26 and Wednesday 31 August and Thursday 8 and Friday 9 September.
It follows a recent ballot for strike action which saw members vote by 97.6% on a 77% turnout to take action.
The union said management responded by imposing a 2% pay rise, which it believed would lead to a "dramatic reduction" in workers' living standards because of soaring inflation.
