Postal workers' demonstration for better pay

Postal workers' demonstration for better pay, originally uploaded by Teacher Dude's BBQ.

"Up to 1,200 postal workers could strike over the use of agency staff at the Bristol Mail Centre in Filton.

The Communication Workers' Union (CWU) will ballot members next week after becoming locked in a dispute with Royal Mail.

The union claims the company has been acting illegally by bringing in extra agency staff to cover positions left open when permanent staff have been on strike during recent national disputes.

It also believes the agency staff brought in at the last minute are not properly vetted before they start work."
