60% of post workers from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen have voted to return to work after both a wildcat strike that started on Tuesday.

However, the CWU's round of 'staggered stoppages' was due to end on 7 of August but has now been extended by at least two weeks. Therefore workers in Scotland will be back out on strike again, and so staff from working sections of Royal Mail coming in contact with picket lines from striking sections will still be an issue.

Meanwhile, Royal Mail is to sell off a second multi-million pound property port-folio of post offices and sorting depots just months after concluding its first £70m deal.
