Thousands of workers in the country's biggest Post Offices are due to stage a fresh strike tomorrow in a long-running row over branch closures, jobs and pay.
Members of the Communication Workers Union at the Crown offices will launch their fifth day of industrial action. It comes after the failure of talks last week to try to resolve the dispute.
The union is opposed to plans to close or franchise 76 Crown offices, the larger branches usually based in High Streets, saying 800 jobs will be affected. The two sides are also in dispute over pay.
