LONDON, Aug 12 (Reuters) - Britain's Communication Workers Union said on Friday workers at the Post Office would take their fourth round of industrial action on Aug. 26, to coincide with a walkout by some staff at Royal Mail (RMG.L) on the same day.

It said around 2,000 workers including those in supply chain and administrative grades would strike in an "everyone-out" day on Aug. 26 in a dispute over pay.

Members in different Post Office functions will then hold further separate 24-hour walkouts, on Aug. 27 and Aug. 30, the union said.
