National Demo To Support Postal Workers - 21st August

I am pleased to say that my local Trades Council has agreed a £300 donation towards transport costs to the National Demonstration being planned for 21st August in London. I was sad to hear that managers in our area have been using various trumped up charges and draconian techniques to victimise increasing numbers of postal workers involved in the dispute. The postal workers deserve the support of all other workers who understand the truth of the phrase "an injury to one is an injury to all".

Those wishing to support the demonstration on 21st August should assemble at 12.00 noon at Clerkenwell Green and depart on the march at 12.30 (Nearest Tube, Farringdon) The rally is at 1.30 on Clerkenwell Green.

The event is part of the CWU's ongoing campaign in defence of postal workers and postal services. More details can be accessed from the CWU website under "Campaigns" - Royal Mail Dispute.

It would be good if some Green Party TU Group, Green Left people, other radicals, Wobblies and syndicalists could get along to show our support for our fellow workers.


UPDATE - 18/08/2007 - The CWU have announced that the demo is postponed pending the result of the current negotiations.
