Royal Mail’s top – and only – workers, Barry Turner and Terry Williams, have both voted to go on strike.
Barry said: “We haven’t gone on strike for years so it’s well overdue.”
Terry said: “Yeah. The management has been very slow to respond to our demands which we made three years ago so it’s time to show them we mean business.”
Barry added: “It’s not easy sorting and delivering millions of letters every week, just the two of us. We were promised another worker several times but the management just haven’t made good on their promise.”
Terry said: “And they promised to cut our working week to 82 hours but that hasn’t happened either, has it Barry?”
“Very ironic, Barry. So that’s why we’re going on strike – so Barry here can get to see his missus now and again. Isn’t that right, Barry?”
“That’s right, Terry… Actually, when I come to think of it, I’m not sure it’s such a good idea after all. What do you think, Terry?”
“Can’t really say, Barry. I’ve never seen your wife.”
