On Tuesday 19th of July the People’s Post campaign will once again be visiting Manchester.
This event followsÂ the enormous success of our People’s Post rally which was held at Manchester Cathedral in October last year. This rally saw 10,000 pack the inside and outside of the building to hear from CWU General Secretary Dave Ward, Leader of the Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Green Party Natalie Bennett, political commentator Owen Jones and others on the perils facing Royal Mail and the Post Office thanks to privatization dogma.
We look forward to engaging with the people of Manchester and discussing with them the issues facing their postal services, including the proposed closures of Delivery Offices, forced franchisingÂ of Post Offices into the back rooms of W.H. Smith branches, and the threat to six day deliveries and the Universal Service Obligation.
