Crown Post Office workers raise job fears over franchise plans

More than fifty staff at Crown Post Offices across Wales have gone on strike over proposals to offer their sites to be franchised.

Protesters outside a branch in Neath raised fears job may be lost.

"We are specialised in what we do, but we are specialised in the Post Office" said Marilyn O'Connell.

"Where do [people] go after this, if they've given 20/40 years service?"
