If the GPO still owned BT this might have been true.

We’ll strike until you let us deliver all your email, say Postmen.
Their union, the Communication Workers Union, has said they will try over the next few days to reach an agreement to let postmen deliver email and prevent any stoppages.

But should those efforts fail, we would see the first UK-wide walkout by postal staff since the last time they were unhappy about the success of the Internet.

The dispute remains essentially the same as two years ago, that postmen and women are not being allowed to deliver email, and as such are no longer able to justify their jobs.

“It’s crazy,” said Union spokesperson, “This is an ideal opportunity for the Royal Mail to differentiate its service.”

“What better way to receive your email than printed out and hand-delivered by one of our well-trained, highly-skilled unionised workers?”


A Royal Mail spokesperson told us, “Look, we have sympathy with the Union, and we have agreed that all the postmen can keep their jobs moving around paper messages, just as soon as the Internet goes out of fashion.”
