Union calls day of action this Saturday to save Crawley Post Office

The Communication Workers Union has called the day of action across the country.

The day is being supported by Crawley Labour and part of a nationwide campaign to halt closures like Crawley’s

Last week the CWU announced Saturday 1st December as a National Day of action across the UK as part of our campaign to fight Crown Office closures and build a stronger future for the Post Office.

One such event will be taking place this coming Saturday (1st) between 10am to 2pm outside CRAWLEY CROWN POST OFFICE, 7 THE BOULEVARD, RH10 1AA, with CWU members, local Labour Party members and supportive groups all set to join a mass protest. There will also be a public meeting to discuss the closure at 3pm in Crawley’s CIVIC HALL. Activists will be gathering signatures for the #SaveOurPostOffice campaign throughout the day.

Commenting on the plans CWU Branch Secretary Andy Morrey said:

“The Post Office is the heart of Crawley, and our union will fight to keep it open and ensure those services are there for many years to come. We urge as many members of the public as possible to join us on the day.”

CWU Regional Secretary Paul Carpenter said:

“This is a fight not only to protect local Post Offices now but to grow them in the future. We are calling for the introduction of a Post Bank so as major banks remove themselves from the High Street we can offer people an ethical and community based banking option.

We will also not sit idly by whilst well rewarded and unionised jobs are transferred into the minimum wage paying, bargain basement employer that is WHSmith. Having been voted consistently as the worst retailer on the High Street we believe WHSmith is not fit to house our vital postal services – join us on December 1st if you agree.”
