Union backs Post Office plans

A union representing almost 200,000 British communication workers says it's largely in favour of plans to corporatise the Isle of Man Post Office.

A report before Tynwald yesterday (Tues 19th) sets out a vision to transform the service into a limited company, freeing it from statutory ownership.

But whilst the Communications Workers Union opposes privatisation, it says corporatisation will allow for greater efficiency.

Deputy General Secretary Terry Pullinger said good service will remain a priority.
