Royal Mail Plc said it will sustain a full-year loss if 115,000 workers go ahead with a planned strike over pay.

The UK postal service will be “materially loss making” in the 2023 fiscal year in the event of walkouts by the Communication Workers Union over four days in August and September, it said in a statement Wednesday.
