Post office workers 'deserve to be treated fairly'
About 2,000 staff at Post Office Crown offices have gone on strike in a row over jobs, pay and closures.
Members of the Communication Workers Union have walked out at 370 sites in a dispute over proposals to close or franchise out 70 of the branches.
A Post Office spokesman said the union was ignoring "harsh realities", with the offices losing £40m a year.
But the CWU's assistant secretary Andy Furey said: "Our members deserve to be treated fairly and they deserve job security."
