United Kingdom -Post office strike -April 02, 2013

In a dispute over jobs, pay and closures thousands of staff in the country's biggest post offices have decided to go on strike. In around 370 so-called ‘crown’ offices workers will walk out in protest at plans to close or franchise 70 sites. The Communication Workers Union (CWU) said hundreds of jobs would be affected by the proposals, which it warned could cause further problems for struggling high streets already suffering from shop closures.
