POSTAL workers in Stevenage went on strike today in support of their union's dispute with Royal Mail over pay, conditions and postal reforms.
Communications Workers Union (CWU) members at the Stevenage depot in London Road, went on strike from 4am after last ditch talks between the Royal Mail and the CWU to prevent the strike broke down.
CWU area representative Steve Butts claimed nobody had crossed the Stevenage picket line.
""We have 100 per cent support from our members. Nobody has crossed the picket line and gone into work today at Stevenage," said Mr Butts.
