Parcel deliveries in London hit by strike

Workers at delivery giant UPS are staging a 24 hour walkout

Parcel deliveries in London are expected to be severely hit today as UPS workers stage a 24 hour strike. The action is part of a row over workloads and alleged bullying.

120 staff at the Camden depot began a walkout at one minute past midnight this morning. Members of the Unite union at the UPS London base voted by 9-1 in favour of industrial action.

Union members 'deep seated grievances' lead to strike

The company made an offer yesterday that failed to address our members' deep seated grievances and it was rejected. As a result, there will be a 24 hour strike tomorrow (Friday) that will hit UPS parcel deliveries in central and west London.

We call on the management to negotiate in a constructive manner to settle this dispute for the benefit of their customers and our members.
