Royal Mail rejects claim of 48,000 redundancies

Royal Mail has denied media speculation that up to 48,000 staff in its letters division could be made redundant.

A Royal Mail spokesman said: “The figures quoted are wrong, but in an increasingly competitive market we are of course testing new, more efficient ways of working including greater automation. Until we have done this we cannot confirm the impact on jobs.”

The Communications Workers Union said it was entering into talks with Royal Mail.
