Green Seniors support the postal strikes

Green Seniors supports the current postal strikes because they are not just in defence of workers' pay, conditions and pensions, the strikes are against Post Office privatisation and closure plans..

Communication Workers Union General Secretary Dave Ward said: “Our members are being forced into fighting to save their jobs and this great institution from terminal decline.”
“We didn’t want to be in this position, but unless we stand up now, the Post Office as we know it will cease to exist. We are defending the very future of the Post Office in this country.
“We want a Post Office that works for everyone, for communities, for small and medium-sized businesses, and for the people who serve them – our hard working members, but the people running the Post Office have no serious plan other than further closures and managed decline and we won’t accept that.” (http://www.cwu.org/media/news/2016/december/12/post-office-bosses-provoke-christmas-week-strike/)
Green Seniors supports the CWU strike because Post Offices are very important to seniors and disabled people, fewer post offices means less access to services and social contact for seniors. The union is right when it says that it is defending a cherished public service
