Royal Mail managers to strike amid pay row

Royal Mail managers are to strike later this month in a dispute over jobs and pay, it has been announced.

The Unite union said 2,400 managers will work to rule on July 15-19, followed by strike action on July 20-22.

Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: "This business is awash with cash but it is putting profits and dividends for the few at the top ahead of its duties as a public service.
