POST Office workers are to stage five days of strikes next week in a dispute over jobs, pensions and branch closures.

The Communication Workers Union said the action will include Christmas Eve.

The union is embroiled in a long-running dispute over job losses, pensions and the franchising of Crown Post Offices, the larger branches usually sited on high streets.

The strike, due to begin on December 19, follows action in October and September.
