It is disappointing that our colleagues have voted in favour of industrial action, however we remain hopeful that the issues can be resolved locally.
Royal Mail is fully committed to the process of trying to resolve concerns of postal workers based in Bridgwater by continuing to follow the national jointly agreed framework with the Communication Workers Union (CWU).
We have made significant progress in recent months, thanks to the efforts of our colleagues and have worked hard to engage the CWU locally.
We urge the CWU not to call our people out on strike action which can only hurt our customers and damage our drive to build a strong and sustainable future for Royal Mail.
