Unions want action on postal workers pay

Postal workers’ unions say they will not protest against the complete opening of the postal market from January 2008 if MPs make sure new players pay their delivery workers proper wages. MPs are to debate the opening of the market on Thursday.

New postal firms such as Sandd and Selekt Mail pay delivery staff on a piecemeal basis based on a couple of euro-cents for each item they deliver rather than an hourly rate.
