Royal Mail workers will go on six new strikes next month, including on Christmas Eve, their union has announced.
The workers are embroiled in a long-running dispute over wages, jobs and working conditions.
The Communication Workers Union had already scheduled four days of strikes to begin next week. These are on Thursday and Friday, but also on Wednesday 30 November and Thursday 1 December.
Members are now also running out on December 9, 11, 14, 15, 23 and 24, according to the union.
A spokesman said: “The CWU wants a negotiated settlement with Royal Mail Group and will continue to engage the company to do so.
“But those in charge of Royal Mail need to wake up and realize that we will not allow them to destroy postmen’s livelihoods.”
