I'm so sick of these people complaining about their jobs. If you don't like it then get another job! :hea:
If they affect my delivery of RB2 then I will be annoyed.

:vlol: ur upset over a postal strike? We had a nation wide strike on Monday in every department: Security, health, construction, education, justice, transport ... I don't know one month in which there isn't at least one strike in this country :p most recent were in education and justice

The thing that galls me is that the union representatives say it's all Royal Mail's fault and that they don't want to provide a bad service to customers. I haven't had great service from Royal Mail staff, and I've made it known to them. The postie at our old flat constantly ruined and shredded our mail. I even saw him knock off the lid to our post box and leave it on the floor. He damaged our property and didn't do anything to attempt to fix it. I could support the workers if they provided a good service and were being treated unfairly. The fact that, as far as I have seen, they cannot even provide a decent service makes me think they do not deserve better renumeration. It makes me cross that they are striking, because they are holding ordinary people and small businesses to ransom and they will only end up damaging Royal Mail more as customers/businesses move to courier services instead. They will damage Royal Mail more than save it.

Well, looks like it's gonna happen. A national postal strike is expected on 22 October UNLESS Royal Mail & CWU come to an agreement.

I'm waiting for Open Unitversity vouchers from Tesco even though they said they dispatched them LAST WEEK. I'm also STILL waiting for RB2.
Royal Mail workers + CWU + Strike = :hea:

UK postal system FTL! :mad:

It is getting ridiculous. The place I worked had post delayed for weeks. My job was paying contract workers in tempory employment and with no time sheet, that they had sent in good time, meant they just *didn't* get paid.

I personally would make every single Royal Mail employee re-sign their contracts; if they don't like it then don't sign. There are people out there who are hankering for work. I heard an elderly couple scorn at an immigrant family with the usual "They come over here, they take OUR jobs"

... Damn right they do. SOMEONE has to.

I don't know about FedEx (they don't operate in Germany for private customers, or if they do they do a very good job at hiding), but UPS as an alternative to anything? I'd rather have my packages delayed by a week-long strike than having to deal with those idiots again...
