If there's anyone out there in the Chester or wider area (so Ellesmere Port, Runcorn, Warrington, Crewe etc) who is interested in anarcho-syndicalism and setting up a new Local of the Solidarity Federation, please get in touch by emailing: chestersf[at]solfed.org.uk
Over one hundred postmen and postwomen at Runcorn Delivery Office decided to celebrate Bastille Day in style and hold a 24-hour unofficial strike against working conditions.
Postal workers have now been promised a five day, forty hour week, but must find it themselves by increasing their workload. Deliveries have been over-loaded at Runcorn for years and repeated requests to management and the union have fallen on deaf ears. Even when proposals were put forward, management refused to implement them.
