Communication Workers Union ballot
STOP PRESS: The Communication Workers Union (CWU) has announced the result of the ballot on the Royal Mail pay and modernisation agreement 2007-8, which the CWU leadership recommended to end the postal workers' strikes.
64% of those voting were in favour of the offer and 36% against on a 64% turnout.
The Socialist Party opposed the offer, as did many postal workers but there was little confidence in the leadership's ability to fight on.
A full analysis will appear in next week's the socialist.
