Royal Mail is going to the courts in an attempt to block  strikes by postal workers during the general election and the Christmas festive period which is its busiest time of the year.

A High Court injunction is to be requested to stop the strike action planned.

Royal Mail is locked in a bitter pay and working conditions dispute with the Communication Workers Union (CWU) and the Union.

The Euro Weekly News here in Spain contacted UK postman Robert Lyons who said ” looks like we are going out on strike – to make it affective the strike looks likely to stuff up the Christmas post”

“Personally I don’t want to strike but it’s hard to go against the Union and to be fair to them they are trying to protect us” Lyons said.

” Our pay is poor for what we do and the hours we work but I just love the job” Lyons finished with.

Royal Mail said it was seeking an interim order to block the strike ballot, which was massively supported by union members last month, because the “integrity and legal soundness” of the vote was “vital”, especially in the run up to the election on 12 December.
