The Crown Post Office in Stamford is open for business today (Tuesday).
It was shut on Saturday when staff joined the two-day strike announced by the Communications Workers Union last week.
But staff at the branch in All Saints’ Street have not taken part in the industrial action, which was due to continue today (Tuesday) and the branch is open.
The union has said the industrial action, which saw the main post offices in cities and towns closed for two days either side of the Bank Holiday weekend, was to protest at plans to close branches and cut jobs.
A Post Office spokesman today said: “We are disappointed that the CWU has called strike action in 370 Crown branches, which make up three per cent of the 11,800-branch Post Office network. During the last round of industrial action, service was maintained at 292 of the 370 Crown branches. Across the whole Crown network, 86 have remained completely unaffected by industrial action while the wider network is also unaffected.
“We are pleased that Stamford Crown Post Office is open today. Some 291 of Crown Post Office branches are open today and we aim to ensure that disruptions are kept to a minimum across the UK, while maintaining discussions with the CWU.”
No other post office or sub-post office in the Mercury were affected b the strike action.
