Relationships between Royal Mail management and the CWU union are deteriorating. The union has called out its 120,000 members on two more days of national strike over more flexible working practices on Friday this week and Monday next week, the Daily Telegraph reports.
The union has also indicated that it will take Royal Mail to the High Court on Friday in an attempt to injunct the company claiming the Royal Mail has broken employment law by hiring 30,000 temporary workers to help sort through the backlog of delayed mail.
The Royal Mail said it has broken no laws and that the agency workers carry out additional duties rather than replacing striking workers.
The company has also spent money on placing full-page advertisements in national newspapers appealing to its staff to defy the CWU union and to cross the picket line and come to work.
