Belfast postal workers consider official strike

In the wake of the 18 day wildcat strike action that crippled Belfast's postal service, union members consider launching an official strike.

The Communication Workers Union (CWU) authorised a ballot of its members for strike action due to Royal Mail management going back on deals made to end the unofficial stoppage on February 17.

The deal had promised no victimisation, although according to CWU spokesperson Eoin Davey, Royal Mail are refusing to give those who struck unlimited overtime, thus treating them differently from those who continued to work.
