image for Royal Mail Delivers Industrial Action
Soon To Be A Battle Scene

Royal Mail workers are to stage a day of industrial action this Friday. Union leaders have said that they have been forced into taking action. "It's the last thing any Union leader wants to do" said Charlie Trotsky "but our hands are tied. We have come up against bullying managers and spineless ministers. Our members want this action."

The claim that the strike was supported by a majority of the workforce was challenged by Adam Crozier, the man in charge of the Royal Mail. "Only 2% of the workforce returned the ballot." The union now thinks that organising a postal ballot was a mistake, as a vast number of ballots have remained undelivered.

On Friday the union will release 100 balloons. They will then deliver letters of protest to Crozier and Lord Mandelson, in something of a busman's holiday. Lord Mandelson said "A strike is a worrying thing, but at least I'll still be getting a mail through my box."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
