Royal Mail has won an injunction in London’s High Court preventing next week’s 48-hour strike.
The postal firm’s workers had been set to walk out from 19 October in protest over pensions, wages and jobs.
But the company said the strike would be “unlawful” if the Communication Workers Union (CWU) did not follow dispute resolution procedures.
A strike ballot of the CWU’s 110,000 members had produced an 89.1% vote in favour.
