British Postal Workers Are on Strike

On Wednesday, workers of the former state-owned postal company Royal Mail began a new strike in rejection of their salary conditions. Their action was called on Aug. 26 as part of a campaign to demand a “dignified and appropriate” wage increase from the company. Other protests will be held on Sept. 8 and 9. Currently, the British workers are not happy with the proposal from Royal Mail, which offered them a raise of just 2 percent despite the fact that they were classified as “essential workers” during the COVID-19 pandemic. In today’s walkout, members of the Communications Workers Union (CWU) staged protests outside post offices across the country. Over 100,000 workers are taking part in the strike
