Werrington Royal Mail dispute

The dispute at Werrington Royal Mail (Peterborough North) was still ongoing on Saturday, 6 July, with enthusiastic support from a crowd of around 100 strikers on the green just down the road from the depot entrance.

Andy Beeby, CWU branch chair, explained that the disciplinary action taken by management the previous morning against one of their members was considered by the CWU to be outside the normal agreed procedures; and that this had then led to an immediate walkout by the CWU membership.

There had been many hours of talks the previous day, including with CWU divisonal representatives, but no settlement.

Talks were expected to be resumed on Monday 8 July and the CWU was remaining firm. Cheers came from the membership as a large lorry entered the depot (at the end of a narrow cul-de-sac) solely to turn round and then leave the depot without stopping to load or unload
