Royal Mail is hugely disappointed that the Communication Workers Union has announced a fresh round of strike for the following dates:
48-hour national strike on 5 and 6 October
48-hour national strike on 8 and 9 October
If you're dead clever like me, you might notice that the 6th of October is a Saturday and the 8th is a Monday. The Royal Mail do not operate on Sundays. These two strikes are 48-hour strikes in the same way that the National Union of Miners staged a series of fifty-one 5-day strikes.
