“Job cuts deal halts strike by postal workers in London”

“Strike action by postal workers in London has been averted after a union reached a deal with the Royal Mail in a dispute over job cuts.

The Communication Workers Union (CWU) voted for industrial action on 24 May after Royal Mail announced plans to close mail centres in the capital.

On Thursday, the CWU said it had received guarantees of no compulsory redundancies while proposed changes were rolled out.

It follows two weeks of talks.

Workers who were balloted were based at Mount Pleasant, Nine Elms at Vauxhall, East London Mail Centre at Bow and Rathbone Place in central London.

They voted to strike by four-to-one in a turnout of 54% after fears centre closures would mean compulsory redundancies.”
