With the strike spreading across the country, thought it would be good to hear peoples views on the matter.
I live in one of the main affected areas, with two main sorting offices in my town.
It has come at a bad time for me, while I wait for important packages in the mail that I paid extra for to have sent by special delivery. Also I need my bills through too.
The matter is so bad, they are beginning to seal up post boxes.
I can understand that there may be dispute about pay and stuff, but busineses are suffering. Royal Mail need to get into some agreement with its employees and fast.
I read another reason was this:
"The action is the result of a culmination of many grievances. One such incident was when a rat was found in a toilet and postal workers were refused permission to use another toilet, which led to the suspension of a union official."
Here are the affected areas:
Whats your opinion? How about in America, have there ever been strikes like this?
