Post strike agony grows: Misery as bills, card payments and cheques are trapped in mail Thousands of families and firms are facing misery because of the postal strikes.
Credit card and store card statements are among more than 20million letters trapped in a backlog as the chaos escalates. The delays are leaving many people open to punishing bank penalty charges and even black marks on their credit records. Small businesses risk being hit with heavy overdraft charges as cheques sent to them fail to arrive.
The total effect of lost orders, bank charges and administration costs is predicted to top the £300million loss caused by the last national postal strike in 2007.
Further industrial action is planned across the country today, while the Communication Workers Union is holding a ballot on an all-out national strike.
It's time this industry was brought into the 21st century. This is the last bastion of 'Spanish practices' and the rest of the workers are FUCKING SCUNNERT.
Dark Lochnagar's wife has had two cheques caught up in this strike for TWO WEEKS. Even our delivery guy is moaning about it. He is given a half empty bag because these wankers are working to rule and told that is all he is getting. Have you ever seen T.V. pictures of the pricks, hand sorting the mail. I've got TWO CATS THAT COULD DO IT FUCKING QUICKER.
Then they expect the rest of the workers including the self employed who have fuck all pension to contribute to their grossly inflated pension pot.
SACK SOME OF THE BASTARDS AND TELL THEM THERE'S NO PENSION, THAT'LL SORT THEM!
