A march and rally is being built for Tuesday 14th of February in support of the striking posties and to demand 'Dignity And Fair Treatment In the Workplace'.
As Wildcat action by Belfast Posties entered its 12th day, on Saturday 11th February, street collections took place in Belfast city centre. Posties, fire fighters and other trade unionists, Belfast and District Trades Union Council delegates, members of Organise!, the Socialist Party and SWP collected money and handed out leaflets explaining the dispute.
The collection was initiated following the establishment of a support group for striking workers by the Belfast and District Trades Union Council and a march and rally is being built for Tuesday 14th of February in support of the striking posties and to demand 'Dignity And Fair Treatment In the Workplace'. The march will assemble at the picket line in Tomb Street at 12.00 noon and make its way to a rally at Belfast City Hall for 12.30.
Condemning the 'macho management' at Royal Mail that led to this dispute the B&DTUC issued a statement giving "their whole-hearted support for the striking Postal Workers in their current dispute with Royal Mail. We condemn the harassment and bullying employed by Belfast Royal Mail management against their staff which has lead to this strike. Every employee has the right to dignity at work and to be treated with basic human decency".
