RACISM and bullying has driven parcel workers to strike, their union said yesterday.

Staff at parcels firm UPS will stage two 24-hour walkouts on Wednesday and Friday next week after an 85 per cent mandate for industrial action.

The walkout, at UPS’s biggest depot in Kentish Town, north London, follows a dispute over similar issues three years ago.

Drivers complain that they are forced to rush deliveries and regularly work longer than their paid hours.

Unite regional officer Onay Kasab said: “This dispute centres on harassment, bullying and racism.

“The local UPS management don’t seem to have learned the lessons of history and we are again faced with a dispute that could severely disrupt UPS deliveries to its customers in the run-up to Christmas.”
