UP to 2,000 postal workers are to strike just days before Christmas in a row over plans to close offices around the country, it was announced today.

The Communication Workers Union said its members from sorting offices in Liverpool, Coventry, Stockport, Oldham, Oxford, Crewe and Bolton will walk out on December 19, the day before the last Christmas posting day for first-class letters.

The union warned of a “devastating” impact on local economies affected by the planned closures of mail offices in the areas and warned of job losses.
