Julie Edge hopes for workforce support in future talks

The chair of the Isle of Man Post Office says negotiations with the Communication Workers' Union over a recent dispute have been long and complex.

Proposed changes to pay, terms and conditions led to two strikes in December and February by Union members.

However, it was announced on Wednesday (15 May) a settlement had been reached and supported by 89% of members.

Speaking on Mandate on Thursday morning (15 May), Julie Edge said there had been compromise on both sides and she hoped they could now work with the union in future negotiations.
