On Saturday I joined the campaign against Royal Mail plans to close Heywood Delivery Office on Hind Hill Street.
Local postal workers were in Heywood town centre to speak to residents about the proposals and the level of opposition to the plans was clear.
In recent weeks I have been contacted by dozens of residents who are deeply concerned about the proposals to relocate the Heywood Delivery Office to Oldham. People are quite rightly worried about the effect this would have on the quality of the service, causing massive inconvenience for residents, and there is also a risk to the jobs of the many people employed at the Heywood office.
I have asked Royal Mail for a meeting and will be sitting down with them soon to raise the concerns of residents and staff.
The Communication Workers Union are working hard to fight the plans and I will be giving them all the support I can in order to keep our local Delivery Office open for the good of everyone in Heywood.
