The PA BS: Is it worth buying stamps? (UK) (29) RE: BS: Is it worth buying stamps? (UK) 10 Oct 07

The post workers have gone back to work today and the news said it will take 4 to 5 days to clear the backlog of mail. This will be mean working overtime, I assume paid at time+1/2, or double time etc. So, they've just had 4 days off, unpaid and could now be paid double to clear the work they didnt do.

Isn't that like having extra paid holiday? or is it more complicated than that?

I have to say I do not know enough about the post workers individual jobs or working conditions to say whether they're wrong or right. I have no axe to grind with them, our company still collected our post from the sorting office at 8.30am anyway otherwise it does not arrive at the office until 11.30am. So it didnt really affect us. Anything urgent going out was e.mailed. But i do sympathise with small businesses etc who rely on the post.
