POSTAL workers from Eastwood joined hundreds of others in a march and rally to protest about the privatisation of Royal Mail.

The Communication Workers’ Union’s march in Beeston last weekend was one of the biggest demonstrations in the county in a generation.

Andy Green, the Eastwood’s union representative said: “The fact is, there are no justifiable grounds or economical reasons for these sell-off plans, and they are deeply unpopular with the public.”

The town’s postmen signed a petition last month, which was taken to Downing Street.
