HUNDREDS of postal workers across East London will be joining a national strike today in their on-going fight against working conditions and job cuts at Royal Mail.
Around 600 members of the Communication Workers Union East London branch are expected to picket outside the East London regional mail centre in Bromley-by-Bow in their 17th walk-out in five months.
And tomorrow they are joined by staff at two delivery centres at Emma Street in Bethnal Green and Tredegar Road in Bow.
The union’s Area rep Angie Mulcahy said: “I cannot see the strikes stopping unless we get an agreement. The workload is unachievable.”
