ANGELA Rayner MP popped into the Royal Mail's Ashton-under-Lyne sorting office today to deliver a message of support to postal workers.
She was celebrating National Postal Workers Day as part of the People’s Post campaign, highlighting the role of postal workers in communities across the UK.
Angela said: “National Postal Workers Day is a chance for businesses and customers across the UK to thank their local postie for their efforts across the year.
"Today is one of the busiest posting days of the year as the Christmas rush begins and I wanted to pop into the sorting office to meet the men and women who are bringing festive greetings to people in my constituency."
She added: "Postal Workers are facing new threats to their terms and conditions as well as the service they provide. People can show their support by signing the People’s Post petition or using #PeoplesPost on social media.”
The petition, which calls for a Parliamentary debate on Postal Services, is at www.supportthepeoplespost.co.uk
The campaign calls for stronger legislation to safeguard daily deliveries and the re-nationalisation of Royal Mail.
