The mafia trade union bosses got it on lockThey got the dumb postmen thinking they are doing something good for them when they are looking at big jobs cuts if they start these national strikesIts good to strike when there is reason but they want to strike due to not getting a pay rise which most aint gettting in these bad economic times and other minor sh*t

Who has the postal strike affected?Postal workers resumed industrial action this week as the Communications Workers Union (CWU) and Royal Mail continue to be at loggerheads over the company's modernisation plans. This week strikes are sweeping across London and the West Country. Royal Mail says the strikes have so far delayed less than a quarter of the national mail bag, with London being worst affected. It claims there is currently a nationwide backlog of 4m letters.How long are delays likely to last?Royal Mail says delays of one to two days are hitting post in most parts of the capital, while in SE and SW postcodes delays are closer to three or four days. However, consumers are reporting that they are waiting much longer for post.By comparison, Royal Mail says it has a good track record outside of strike periods. In the 12 months to March the company hit its delivery targets with 93% of first-class mail hitting doormats the day after posting, and 98.5% arriving within three working days.Will I get compensation from Royal Mail if my post is not delivered?You may qualify for compensation if any letters are delayed. A spokeswoman for Royal Mail says the company has no plans to change its compensation scheme during the industrial action. Different services have different levels of compensation, details of which are available from Royal Mail.Essentially, if you post a letter first class and it arrives five days after you sent it, or seven days for second-class post, you should qualify for compensation in the form of 12 first-class stamps. You may also get a cheque for £5. If the item is delivered more than 11 working days (13 for second class) after you posted it you should get £10.If something of value gets lost in the post Royal Mail should refund the loss of the item up to 100 first-class stamps or the market value of the object, whichever is the smaller amount. However, you need to be able to prove when you actuallt posted it, which means obtaining a certificate of posting before you put it in the letterbox.What if I need to send something important?If you are sending something urgent you should use a guaranteed service to make sure it gets through the strike. Sending something by special delivery allows you to track an item and gives you electronic proof of delivery, although special deliveries may also face disruption during industrial action, so your item could still be delayed.What if I need to buy tickets or have documents delivered?If you can have tickets or documents sent by email to print out at home, then do so. For train travel, most companies offer the option of printing out your tickets using a machine at the station. Virgin Trains is asking customers to give more notice when buying tickets to be sent by post, but a spokeswoman advised customers to choose to print tickets at home or at the station rather than relying on the post. For theatre or concert tickets you should choose to pick up your tickets at the box office where possible.Will there be a nationwide strike?The union is threatening to a national strike unless Royal Mail agrees to a string of demands in the next 48 hours. Dave Ward, CWU deputy general secretary, says: "We have written to Royal Mail making it clear that the CWU is ready to issue notice for a national strike as voted for by three-quarters of postal workers." If Royal Mail turns down the union the first nationwide strikes could begin on 22 October.What would the impact be?The Royal Mail spokeswoman says: "It is impossible to speculate on how the service would be affected since this would depend on the type of action taken, and at the moment it is not certain that a strike will take place."We do our best to minimise the affects of strikes to our customers."

Why dont they f*ck off these guys that are striking. Theres enough unemployed people that would do the job for the money they are offering!Anyway I think its 3 days. Day 1 is the sorting office, day 2 is the delivery drivers and day 3 is something else.
