The network and sales director at the Post Office has said he is "disappointed" after the Communication Workers Union said its members will launch a fresh wave of strikes from today. Kevin Gilliland added:
This action can only cause disruption to customers, cost our people money and place further pressure on the Crown network which is currently losing £37 million a year.
We must continue with our plans to turn around the Crown network to ensure we keep these branches on high streets and in city centres across the UK.
