Stoke-on-Trent stands together

Matthew Collins - 30 04 11

Today in Stoke-on-Trent over 150 people marched through Hanley to oppose the planned closure of a Royal Mail Customer Service Centre. Royal Mail has repeatedly moved jobs out of the area and this time over 400 people’s jobs are at risk. For a city that currently experiences much higher than average unemployment these job losses are a blow to the community.

The Communication Workers Union welcomed HOPE not hate’s support for the campaign and we have worked together to promote today’s event through our local materials and networks. Speakers at the rally included Melanie Meredith, a worker in the Service Centre whose job is at risk. Melanie called on everyone to support the campaign and oppose any possible BNP intervention as it would only lead to division and hate in the community.

I will be interviewing Melanie early next week but in the meantime you can support the campaign here.
