AROUND 100 postmen and women walked out on strike from the Bridgwater Royal Mail Delivery Office in Friarn Street at the weekend.

The Communication Workers Union (CWU) which represents the employees said the workers were protesting on Saturday (November 21) against the dismissal of a young postman which they believe is 'unfair.'

A spokesperson for Royal Mail said they have worked with the workers to resolve the issue.

“There was a short disruption to service on Saturday morning at Bridgwater Delivery office,” the spokesperson said.

“We sincerely apologise to customers in the area for any disruption to their mail services.

“Working with our people, we have resolved any areas of concern, and all staff are back to work.”
