It is proving to be harder than I had expected to support the striking postal workers.
I should rephraseÂ that…
It is proving to be harder than I expected to show my support for the striking postal workers.
Having a full-time job myself with a lot going on there, and more limited access to transport since writing off my car, it is harder to get to the Horsham depot to visit the picket line and physically show support.
In fact I did pop over after work last Friday, since we finish work at lunchtime on Fridays.Â Unfortunately I did not arrive to see a picket line, but open gates with one van a minute going through it.Â Perhaps I should have gone at 0600 like my colleagues did.
I can’t even say that I have shared the suffering of interrupted mail: I seem to have had more post in the last couple of weeks than normal, even on what were supposed to be strike days.
I suspect it would be inappropriate to put my fraternal greetings on a postcard and send it off…
