Talks to avert a possible Easter strike are ongoing between Burnley postal workers and Royal Mail.

The Burnley Express understands that workers at the Burnley sorting office in Bank Parade are threatening to withdraw their labour this Thursday, Saturday and the following Tuesday.

It is believed that workers are angry over the dismissal of two long-serving colleagues, one of whom is former Burnley Borough Council leader Stuart Caddy.

The Express revealed on March 28th that around 100 Burnley members of the Communication Workers Union held a one day strike held a one day strike at the end of the month.

Then, a former worker complained that a “culture of bullying” was prevalent at the sorting office.

A spokesman for Royal Mail would only confirm at this stage that talks are ongoing to avoid a possible strike.
