National Postal Workers Day – Wednesday 29th April

No primary category set

The Communication Workers Union have announced that the ninth annual National Postal Workers Day will be held on Wednesday the 29th of April.

We are all reliant on our Posties in one form or another, even if it’s just for Christmas, Birthday, Valentines and Mother’s day cards. At the moment however their services are more vital than ever connecting the nation and ensuring for many that they can still obtain vital supplies.

For many merchants, the postal service is the only thing keeping them in business during the coronavirus crisis, so this year more then ever the annual acknowledgement of the role postal workers play in communities across the UK has never been better timed with CWU members and other postal workers going above and beyond the call of duty to keep every Village, Town and City in the UK connected.

Members of the public are asked to mark the day by saying a simple ‘thank you’ to your local postie or join the celebration on social media using #PostalWorkersDay

Make sure that if you have a postal collection next Wednesday on National Postal Workers Day, have a delivery and see your postie, or pass one in the street when you’re out for your daily exercise or weekly shop, that you give them a cheery wave hello and let them know how much you appreciate them.

  1. The Communication Workers Union are all to quick and ready to plunge the UK into strikes on an on going basis. They are a constant threat to all on-line businesses. Their leaders get paid hundreds of thousands including benefits.
    A postal worker has a job to do and is very well paid both in salary and benefits. Just get on with your job and stop preening.
    Well done for turning up to work…clap..clap..clap….

  2. Yes it is right that we recognise and celebrate the workers on the frontline in the NHS. But we should also recognise all those less celebrated roles like postal workers, refuse workers, shop workers, bus drivers, school teachers etc.

    In fact, no modern economy can exist without the essential work that these people do, even in normal times. A modern complex economy relies on them as much as the City Trader. No school teacher or tube driver = no high paid City banker. And that goes for on-line businesses as well.

    And contrary to what some might wish for, we do not live in a dictatorship or slave-owning society, so the right to join a trade union, and collectively withdraw your labour, under certain circumstances, is part of living in a free democracy and long may it continue!

  3. Not sure what you mean… I say “hello” and “thank you” to postal worker collecting our bags each and every day from Mon-Fri. 😉
