For :cen: sake.

If they want more money, why don't they leave the Royal Mail and get a better paying job? Or will they say that they won't have any money while they're searching for a job? They either stick with the Mail or ditch it.

Same old story, if they get what they want they'll only find something else to strike over.

I'm well and truly sorry, but, what is so bad about the Royal Mail going on strike for a day? Doesn't it just mean that any letters or packages will arrive a day later?

If only was that simple.. Any strike means no post sorted or delivered or picked up, meaning theres a backlog and a LOT of post gets `lost` in the system.

They lose a stupidly large amount of post as it is!! i've done tests over the years sending multiple post cards to same address from different places (even next street) and only 75% came thru!!

Yeah, they are pretty bad with loosing things too. I remember I bought a game off of eBay a few years ago and it got lost in the post. Luckily the seller was happy to refund me.
