A Postman of my Own Heart

A postman who advised people how to stop junk mail being delivered to their home could lose his job after bosses suspended him for misconduct.
Roger Annies composed and circulated a leaflet about the Royal Mail's opt-out clause for unsolicited mail during his rounds in Barry, south Wales.
With a new door-to-door agreement about to be signed with Royal Mail removing the limits of how many advertisments a postman will deliver in future , this innovative tactic of direct action by one of its members to reduce his work-load and protect the environment won't go down too well with our union leaders in the CWU .

Unaddressed mail - Opt-Outs, Royal Mail, Kingsmead House, Oxpens Road, Oxford, OX1 1RX
Addressed mail - Mail Preference Service (MPS), Freepost 29, LON 20771, London, W1E 0ZT or call 0845 703 4599

I read this story and wrote a post on my blog about it.

Nice one for supplying the details on how to stop junk mail.

A distinct lack of common sense on behalf of Royal Mail me thinks!!!

Royal Mail management are like shit ...The biggest ones always rise to the top , and thats talking with 23 years of experience of them .
And , unfortunately , the proposed agreement the union want us to accept on households is carte blanche for Royal Mail to send out the walk-postmen like pack-mules .
