Post Office strike action 'only causes more disruption'

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.
