Pay rise means fewer jobs at Post Office

Thu, 29 Sep 2011


There are to be redundancies at the Isle of Man Post Office following the announcement of a new pay deal.

Post Office staff and their union confirmed yesterday that an agreement over pay has been reached following months of negotiations.

Staff had threatened to strike after initially being refused a pay increase earlier this year, but the action was called off last minute
