Dave Joyce CWU National Health and Safety Officer said, “I’m delighted to see some well-deserved public recognition of the heroic commitment and dedication of UK front line CWU grade postal workers in Royal Mail and Parcelforce – in keeping the country connected and resiliently maintaining the postal service during the Covid-19 pandemic by delivering for the nation, not only a normal service but one which saw record levels of traffic passing through our network. The country, the Government and the NHS depended on us and we delivered, proving that Royal Mail is the best in the world. I would personally like to dedicate this award to those colleagues who were Covid victims and are sadly no longer with us.”
