Post Office Ltd’s review of Postmaster pay is welcome, however the devil will be in the detail. Both the National Federation of Sub-Postmasters and the Communications Workers Union need to be more closely involved in any decision-making – especially on pay.
The UK Government cannot escape the fact that it has allowed the Postmaster crisis to come this far. It has taken a valued public service and workers’ lives right to the brink. Communities expect more than managed decline.
