Union to escalate Royal Mail strikes.

Strikes by postal workers in a bitter row over pay and jobs are to be escalated, it was announced last night. The Communication Workers Union will today unveil a fresh programme of industrial action following two nationwide walk-outs. The union's executive said it had decided to escalate the level of strike action following the lack of progress during recent talks with the Royal Mail. The union said that the dates they would be looking at for strike action would be "selected in order to maximum disruption to all Royal Mail services". A spokesman for the Royal Mail said, "We are disappointed that the CWU has again failed to understand the realities of the tough commercial market in which [we] now operate."
