BARNSLEY members of the Communication Workers’ Union formed picket lines to strike for a pay rise.
Strikes - which took place outside the town centre’s Royal Mail hub on Pitt Street at the weekend - had support from members of the Trades Union Congress.
Members are striking for a pay rise from Royal Mail that ‘fully addresses the current cost of living’.
CWU spokesman Andy Furey said: “Everybody knows there’s more than enough money for a reasonable pay rise and it’s time for those at the top to show real respect for dedicated public servants who, as key workers, provided unprecedented customer service during the pandemic.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
