More post office closures ahead, union warns

MORE than 1, post offices in the UK have shut or been put up for sale this year, with some not showing up in official closure lists, according to new research. The Communication Workers Union said there would be more closures if the Government pressed ahead with its controversial plans to privatise the Royal Mail. A study by the union showed that 162 post offices were listed as "long-term temporary closures" this year.
