Support the Postal Workers

The postal workers have decided to strike and need our wholehearted solidarity.

Extensive local action is already taking place.

I'll blog here as soon as I have details of where to send donations - UNISON branches should be inviting local CWU postal reps to our Branch Committees.

Update - the London Division of the CWU (where 12,500 members have taken up to 14 days of strike action) have set up a hardship fund;

The details of the fund are as follows:
CWU LONDON DIVISIONAL COMMITTEE – HARDSHIP FUND
Unity Trust Account No. 20232065
Sort Code: 086001

Please send donations to the address below:
Hardship Fund
c/o CWU London Divisional Committee
2nd Floor, 33-41 Dallington Street
London
EC1V 0BB
020 7336 8371 or 020 7336 8373

Should we really be encouraging people to send donations by post?
