From The Socialist newspaper, 24 August 2006

Crown Post Offices

MEMBERS OF the Communication Workers' Union (CWU) held a protest outside the Swansea branch of WH Smith last week to highlight the threat to jobs and services if the city centre Crown Post Office is closed and franchised out.

Alec Thraves

This protest follows an earlier mass meeting, protest march and the collection of over 10,000 signatures calling for the transfer to be scrapped.

The mood amongst workers and the general public is one of extreme anger at the Post Office's total dismissal of widespread opposition in their so-called public consultation exercise.

The CWU are balloting their members for industrial action and calling for a national boycott of W H Smith.

At its August meeting, Swansea trades council called on all trade unionists to fully support the campaign.
