Postal workers in Leicester at the North Delivery Office held a gate protest on Friday of last week over the sacking of Simon Furze, their CWU rep.

Management at the office are trying to use the attack on Simon as a means to weaken the union and bully workers.

Send letters of protest to Allan Leighton, Royal Mail Group Ltd, 148 Old Street, London, EC1V 9HQ. Send messages of solidarity to Leicestershire CWU, 1 New Street, Leicester, LE1 5NR. Email

Contact the Defend Simon Campaign for speakers for your union branch by emailing
