POSTAL strikes will hit Dunmow and Stansted residents this week as workers stage rolling one-day strikes.

In total, 44 depots across south-west London, Essex and Bristol have call strikes today (Monday) - including Great Dunmow, Stansted, Bishop Stortford, Braintree, Chelmsford, and Witham.

Meetings between Royal Mail negotiators and union official will be taking place from Wednesday to try and resolve the dispute over job protection, pay and services.

But a national strike could be called in as little as seven days if talks break down.

Further strikes in the local game are expected later but as yet no dates have been set.
