Princes Risborough postal workers to go on strike this Saturday
PRINCES Risborough postal workers are going on strike this Saturday to protest against the delivery office move to Aylesbury Vale.
There will be a picket line outside the delivery office in Bell Street, Princes Risborough on Saturday from about 5am until 1pm.
The building has already been sold but post men and women who work in the town hope the delivery office could be relocated somewhere else in the town.
Despite a petition to keep the service, Royal Mail announced two weeks ago that the move to the Aylesbury Vale delivery office six and a half miles away is going ahead.
Local union representative, Andy Ball, who works at the delivery office, said they are going to strike on Saturday meaning residents will not get their mail until Wednesday morning, due to the two Jubilee holidays at the beginning of next week.
He said: "It is regrettable because the public have really been on our side.
"Royal Mail have come out with their flawed business plan. We have been left with no other option."
He said since Royal Mail bosses announced the move is to go ahead another suitable location has become available in Place Farm Way in Monks Risborough.
Andy said: "That's fit for purpose now. Not a lot really needs doing to it.
"Hopefully the strike will at least get them to look at that location."
