The Union says it wants to continue talks and is tabling its own proposals this weekend.

Mr Pullinger says if the people of the Island care about their postal services, they should make sure they know what's going on.

Industrial action is set to go ahead next week, from Thursday 14 to Saturday 16. A strike action updates web page has been set up by the Post Office at iompost.com/strike
