Royal Mail wins court injunction to prevent strike
Royal Mail has won a High Court injunction to block a 48-hour strike planned by postal workers next week.
A week ago workers from the Communication Workers Union served notice to the FTSE 250 company that staff will strike for 48 hours from noon on 19 October due to a dispute over pensions and pay.
The union's 110,000 members voted 89.1% vote in favour of a strike in the ballot.
Royal Mail said the strike would be "unlawful" if the CWU did not follow dispute resolution procedures.
