By a postal worker
The Communication Workers’ Union held a national meeting on 27 October in Leeds to discuss its campaign against the threat of Post Office privatisation. So far 153 Labour MPs (and nine others) have signed Parliamentary Early Day Motion 548, calling for the Post Office to remain 100 percent in public ownership.
The union needs a campaign of mass activity if they are to make a succes of it.
This is particularly important since both Royal Mail chairman Allan Leighton and Secretary of State for Trade and Industry Alan Johnson are proposing giving postal workers shares in the business as a step towards privatisation.
