POSTAL chaos was avoided for Southampton today after 90 workers went on strike this morning.
The unofficial industrial action took place at Shirley Delivery Office over the suspension of a member of staff.
Rob Hayhurst, area of rep for the Communication Workers Union (CWU), said: "An individual CWU rep was suspended this morning and as far as everyone was concerned here, he followed the correct procedure, so we took action."
The strike action ended at 10.30am after around an hour and some deliveries in Shirley, Millbrook, Lordshill, Bassett and Chilworth may be affected.
