Commenting on the Communications Workers’ Union’s (CWU) decision to widen postal strikes, and on-going disruption to mail services, David Frost, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), said:  

“The announcement today will be a serious knock to business confidence.  The run up to Christmas is a vital trading period for firms and if this strike goes ahead orders will be lost and the fragile recovery will be undermined.     

“It is about time those involved in the industry showed some much needed leadership and brought an end to this disruption.”
