With the news that Post Office staff shared £15.4 million in bonuses, their plans to close offices, cut jobs and refuse to agree a pay rise for Crown office staff is unbelievable.
They're lavishing bonuses at the top while slashing jobs, services and pay for frontline staff. It's blatant fat-cat behaviour from management out of touch with their workforce.
Post Office staff, customers and communities are continuing to stand up for the local Crown post office services they value so highly. The support continues to be enormous. Bosses cannot keep their heads in the sand forever.
Workers in hundreds of Crown post offices will take fresh strike action today in a long-running row over branch closures, jobs and pay.
