The union representing workers at the UK’s Royal Mail says it will defend its strike action to protest changes to the company’s pension plan.
The Communications Workers Union, reports Reuters, will “defend its position on industrial action against Royal Mail PLC in the High Court on Thursday.”
The union revealed on Oct. 3 that  89 per cent of its “members voted in favour of the industrial action against a turnout of 74 per cent. Taking into account the 18,000 front-line employees who are not union members, 57 per cent of Royal Mail employees backed the strike,” reports Reuters.
