Julie Edge confident core services will continue during walkout 

The chair of the Isle of Man Post Office believes the organisation has enough non-union workers to keep core services running during next week's strikes.

Communication Workers' Union staff voted in favour of industrial action, with a two-day walkout scheduled for Thursday and Friday next week.

93% of those who voted in the ballot supported strike action in response to Government plans to change the terms and conditions of employment for postal workers.

Almost 200 of the Post Office's 340 employees are members of the union, but Julie Edge MHK says contingency plans are in place.
