Sinn Féin Foyle MLA Raymond McCartney has voiced his support for postal workers in their campaign to save pension rights and a shorter working week.
“The union has an overwhelming mandate to pursue this action following an 89% vote in favour of it.
“They Post Office should respect the right of workers to engage in mandated legal action in pursuit of legitimate goals. In this case, the postal workers are opposing changes to their pension scheme which will see members losing up to a third of their retirement benefits.
“In those circumstances, and even if there is some temporary disruption to services, I am sure the vast majority of the public will support the postal workers in any action they take .”
