The ballot papers to Royal Mail workers will no longer happen next Friday as planned.
I understand there is a delay in the membership list.
The Communication Workers Union - which met in Birmingham at lunchtime - is likely to send out the ballot papers in the following week.
The union has to give 7 days notice of its plans to ballot members - and 7 days notice to Royal Mail of its plans to strike (should the workers vote for one).
It means the earliest date for strike action will no longer be October 10.
But the CWU dispute with Royal Mail will still hang over the company as the government tries to find investors for the privatisation.
