Royal Mail has announced plans to make up to 6,000 people redundant by next August, blaming ongoing strike action and rising losses at the business.

The postal company said it had begun notifying workers of its plan, which aims to reduce its overall headcount by a total of 10,000.

The majority of the cuts will be made through redundancy while the rest will be achieved through natural attrition.

Royal Mail also said it expects its full-year losses to hit £350m.

It said this included “the direct impact of eight days of industrial action” as well as lower volumes of parcels being posted.
