Royal Mail says union votes in favour of pay, operational changes

(Reuters) - Britain's Royal Mail said on Wednesday 91.5% of the eligible members of its largest union had voted in favour of a framework agreement over pay and operational changes.

The company said in December it had reached a deal with the Communication Workers Union over the changes, ending two years of dispute and paving the way for one of the oldest postal companies to focus on parcel deliveries.
