CWU confirms compromise made with IoM PO board

Today, the Communication Workers' Union announced it had finally reached an agreement with the Isle of Man Post Office over staff pay, and terms and conditions.

If we cast our minds back to February, tensions between the two were frosty at best:

Tim Glover spoke to the union's Postal Executive Steve Halliwell - was he pleased?

The Isle of Man Post Office released this statement:

On tomorrow morning's Mandate programme, we'll hear reaction from the Isle of Man Post Office Board.
