Royal Mail will apply for High Court injunction

Royal Mail will apply for High Court injunction”

Staff could also stage walkouts during the Black Friday retail sales event next month or during the festive season.

"CWU has declined to withdraw its notification", Royal Mail said in an email. The company claims that, under an agreement with the union, the CWU must enter mediation with the Royal Mail before embarking on industrial action. Royal Mail gave the CWU until noon to retract the threat of a strike on the 19th, which they haven't done.

"Royal Mail believe that the strike date announced is illegal because the CWU and Royal Mail has not been through a" legally-binding external mediation process".

Reuters reported today that Royal Mail had said that it would seek an injunction with the High Court after the CWU failed to withdraw its intention to strike over a pensions dispute.

The postal firm said it would apply for an injunction at the High Court to prevent the industrial action.

The CWU last week said that 89.1 per cent of members who voted had been in favour of a strike, with a turnout of 73.7 per cent. That was well above the 50 per cent threshold required under the new Trade Union Act.

The ballot came amid a flurry of union activity this autumn as public sector and health workers discuss the possibilities of industrial action.

Royal Mail has said it will take legal action in an attempt to stop thousands of workers walking out this month.

CWU general secretary Dave Ward has called it a "watershed dispute" that will determine the future of the postal service.
