The Unite union has said it will consider strike action if there are compulsory redundancies included in the 1,600 job losses.
First the Government sells off Royal Mail on the cheap and now the newly privatised service is ruthlessly sacrificing jobs.
We do not believe that it's a coincidence that this announcement has been made just before the company prepares to announce its first full set of accounts since privatisation.
For all that Royal Mail managers have been through they do not deserve to be treated in this way.
Unite is demanding a commitment to no compulsory redundancies on fair terms and an effective method for redeployment within the restructured organisation.
If Royal Mail refuse, we will have no alternative than to consider a ballot for industrial action.
