Today, Andrew Gwynne MP has thanked postal workers on National Postal Workers Day, for their consistent hard work in sorting an delivering millions of people’s post every week.
Monday, December 12th marks the celebration of National Postal Workers Day. The Communication Workers Union is proud to highlight the vital role played in communities across the UK by our loyal members who collect, sort and deliver the People’s Post – the universal service obligation that guarantees deliveries to 29 million UK addresses six days a week, 52 weeks a year.
Andrew Gwynne said:
“National Postal Workers Day is a brilliant opportunity for us to say thank you to postal workers up and down the country who work tirelessly all year round, in all weather conditions, delivering our post.
“After a recent visit to the Royal Mail Denton sorting office, it became clear how demanding a job postal workers have. At all levels, from workers at the Post Office to the posties that deliver mail to us. The postal industry keeps our economy afloat, and I invite all others to today say thank you to all Postal Workers.”
Ian Tomlinson, Communication Workers Union Manchester Branch Secretary said:
“National Postal Workers Day is a chance for businesses and customers across the UK to thank their local postmen and postwomen for their efforts across the year. With today being one of the busiest posting days of the year this is particularly pertinent. Postal Workers are facing threats to their terms and conditions as well as the service they provide.”
