NATIONAL POSTAL WORKERS DAY

Monday, December 12th marks the celebration of National Postal Workers Day. I am proud to highlight the vital role played in communities across the UK by Postmen and Women 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.

Theresa Griffin MEP 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”.

Carl Webb, Regional Secretary of the CWU who represent 120,000 postal workers, said:

“The day’s events celebrate the hard work of postal workers, acknowledge the critical role they play in our local communities and give them the thanks and recognition they deserve delivering the People’s Post.

“For less than the price of a cup of tea you can post a letter in Cornwall today and have it arrive in Scotland tomorrow.

“It’s a wonderful human and logistical effort that should be celebrated and protected”.
