01-11-2022: Royal Mail workers will stage two 48-hour strikes around Black Friday and Cyber Monday in a dispute over pay, jobs and conditions, the Communication Workers Union announced. CWU general secretary Dave Ward said industrial action will continue in the run up to Christmas unless the dispute is resolved.
