STAFF at the three Crown post offices across Oxfordshire will go on strike later this month.

Communication Workers Union members will walk out on Wednesday for half a day.

The strike will affect the Oxford St Aldate’s branch and the offices in Witney and Banbury. The Crown offices are managed directly by the Post Office.

As well as branch staff, a further 2,000 CWU members working in supply chains will strike on the same day.

The dispute is over jobs, pay and branch closures.
