Angry YET ANOTHER Postal Strike?!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/8296660.stm

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

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.

Because of postal strikes happening all over the world recently I'm still waiting for a parcel that was delivered 3 weeks ago.
