THE postal system will be in chaos until next week as workers go on strike.

The Communications Workers Union (CWU) has announced two 48-hour walk-outs.

The first will begin at lunchtime today (Thurs) and will end on Saturday. The second will begin in the early hours of Monday, ending in the early hours of Wednesday.

This will be followed by an unspecified programme of weekly strikes, starting week commencing October 15, until the resolution of the dispute.
