Further proposals being made by CWU this weekend

The Chief Executive of the Post Office says the Board is waiting to see counter proposals from the Communication Workers Union.

Simon Kneen was speaking following a day and a half of what he described as "fairly intense" discussions with CWU negotiators led by Terry Pullinger.

Union workers are due to stage a three day strike from next Thursday, in an ongoing dispute over pay and pension reforms.

The latest proposal from the Post Office was rejected by the union at a meeting on Wednesday night, but Mr Kneen says he believes they are making progress.
