Fighting Post Office Closures

 

Islington Labour are fighting the Post Offices decision to close Post Offices in Islington. Here's the latest in our campaign to save Islington's Post Offices.

On December 19th Emily Thornberry MP, Jeremy Corbyn, Cllr Richard Watts, the CWU and local campaigners outside the Post Office Headquarters to hand in Islington Labour's petition opposing the closure of Highbury and Islington and Upper St Post Offices.

We had requested a meeting with the CEO of the Post Office, Paula Vennels, but she declined to meet with us.

Islington Labour oppose the closure of these Post Offices and the planned ‘merger’ of them into a new one,  half  the size of the two of them combined.

The Labour Council has promised £750.000 and the use of one of their buildings to ensure there is a Post Office at Highbury Corner. It is astonishing that the Post Office has refused this help this money.

Both the Council and our MPs have had regular meetings with the Post Office. Emily Thornberry said "I do not believe that the new Post Office on Upper Street will not have in longer queues, or have adequate access for disabled customers."

Sign our petition to oppose the closure to Islington's Post Offices here.
