Commenting on the Communications Workers’ Union’s (CWU) decision to widen postal strikes, and on-going disruption to mail services, Dr Adam Marshall, Director of Policy at the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), said:  

"This strike announcement defies logic at a time when businesses and government are working hard to move the UK economy back to growth. Postal delays are already hurting small businesses and major companies across the country.   

“At a time when businesses are taking drastic measures to keep as many people in employment as possible, the CWU's call for strike action in the run-up to the busy Christmas period is akin to a death-wish."
