Stamford postal workers have not joined a national strike.

Communication Workers Union members at crown Post Office branches across the county have taken industrial action today (Monday).

Staff at Stamford’s crown branch in All Saints’ Place refused to confirm last week whether they were joining the strike, which was called against plans to close about 70 branches.

But the office is open as usual today.

The Stamford branch is not one of those threatened with closure.
