The CWU is to re-ballot its members working for Royal Mail after talks with the company broke down.

Union members in October voted by 97.1% for strike action but the following month the High Court ruled the union had interfered with the ballot process and therefore the vote was invalid.

The union agreed to talks with the company to find a solution. The talks started yesterday, but broke down before the day ended.

CWU general secretary Dave Ward tweeted:  “Talks with Royal Mail have broken down and we are now moving towards re-balloting our members for Industrial Action. We will run the biggest campaign the movement has ever seen. RT if you are with your postal worker.”
