In response to today's strikes at more than 300 crown Post Offices nationwide, the Post Office issued the following statement:
"Crown branches are currently losing £40 million per year and this is being subsidised by public money.
This cannot continue. We are committed to the Post Office remaining a key part of UK high streets and our plans ensure this will happen."
As well as opposing branch closures, the CWU are also demanding an end to pay-freezes for its members.
And stress that unless an offer is forthcoming, more industrial action could be on the cards."
