Swansea postal workers strike to defend colleague
Postal workers in Swansea will start balloting for strike action on 4 July in support of fellow Communication Workers' Union (CWU) member Martin Henwood (Rodders), who has been sacked by Royal Mail after being accused of not following their 'door-to-door' (unaddressed mail) delivery procedure.
Rodders has worked for Royal Mail for 32 years and has no previous disciplinary record. His sacking has caused uproar among the workforce who have witnessed management's increasingly bullying approach over the past few years.
Unless he is reinstated the CWU is confident of a massive Yes vote for future strike action.
Alec Thraves, Swansea Socialist Party
Workers at a Royal Mail delivery office in Ferndale, south Wales, downed tools in an unofficial strike on 26-27 June after a dispute with management. The CWU members walked out after problems with a manager came to a head. Around 30 people stopped work, demanding the manager be removed or a formal investigation launched. The postal workers returned to work following an agreement between the CWU and management had been reached.
