National Postal Workers Day December 17th

National Postal Workers Day December 17th

Monday, 17th December, will be the first-ever National Postal Workers Day, when the whole nation celebrates the hard work and dedication of hundreds of thousands of women and men who collect, sort and deliver letters, parcels and packets for everyone everywhere.

Stevenage MPU posties

Six days a week, 52 weeks a year, come rain, shine, sleet or snow, the UK's posties are out on their walks, on the road and in mail centres, each playing their part in ensuring that this vital public service delivers to everyone, everywhere.

National Postal Workers Day celebrates these people, reminds the nation of the value of the service they provide and the sheer hard work that that so many people put in to sustain it.

National Postal Workers Day invites the UK public to:

  • Show your appreciation of your postal workers
  • Celebrate the work they do for you
  • Remember the UK's postal service belongs to you

National Postal Workers Day - your postie, working for you.

Look out for your local posties and show your support by tweeting us @CWUnews using #posties, post your comments on the CWU Facebook group and don't forget to send us your snaps of posties in their santa hats!

To publicise the event please download and stick the posters up on union noticeboards around your workplace:
