Luke Pollard MP Member of Parliament for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport
- Luke has supported the #PostalWorkersDay by sharing an image of himself with #ThumbsUpForYourPostie
- Postal workers are frontline staff who deserve our thanks and throughout this crisis
- They have continued to go to work during the pandemic, working to keep the country connected
On the day of the ninth National Postal Workers Day, Luke has thanked post men and women across the country who are working to keep people connected throughout this crisis.
Up and down the country people have been posting messages to thank post men and women for the work they are doing to help keep the country running – especially by delivering letters and parcels to the vulnerable who are unable to leave their homes.
To show his appreciation, luke has posted a big ‘thumbs up’ from a safe two metre distance. Postmen and Postwomen are at the heart of the communities they serve, and you can stay connected with them and show your support with a friendly thumbs up too.
“Postal staff are a frontline group who have been left behind and missed out on the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to keep them safe at work. As well as righting this wrong and ensuring all posties have the equipment they need to keep them and customers safe, we also need to properly recognise the work they are doing.
It is important that after this crisis, postal workers who collect, sort and deliver letters, parcels and packets to 29 million addresses, 6 days a week are rewarded for the hard work and positive attitude they have demonstrated throughout this pandemic.“
Let’s all thank our posties and celebrate #PostalWorkersDay together.
