UK strike will disrupt local post

Manx residents are likely to experience postal disruption as a result of United Kingdom strikes due to start this evening (Wed).

The industrial action in Royal Mail by the Communication Workers Union is set to last for two weeks and will affect various parts of its operations.

It's as a result of unsuccessful pay negotiation talks between the two.
