Royal Mail condemns strike by staff at Fenland sorting office as “unlawful”
ROYAL Mail bosses have tonight condemned a two-hour strike by staff at a sorting office in March, Cambridgeshire, as “unlawful”.
Around 30 staff at the Royal Mail sorting office in Dartford Road, March, stood outside the building to conduct their protest in the pouring rain this morning.
Senior officials are believed to have arrived from King’s Lynn and Peterborough to resolve the issues with striking staff and end the two-hour protest.
Staff stated that it was a local dispute only and involved the breakdown of trust with local management.
A Royal Mail spokesman said tonight, in a statement: “Royal Mail condemns this unlawful and unofficial action, which hurts our customers and our business.
