Uniting workers and communities in the London Borough of Camden
As you are hopefully aware, a further public meeting has now been called to defend the Crown Office status of Swiss Cottage Post Office (18, Harben Parade, Finchley Road, NW3 6JU) as follows:
Date: Thursday, 21st November.
Venue: Community Room, Level 2, O2 Centre, 255, Finchley Road, London, NW3 6LU (Nearest tube stations: Finchley Road & Swiss Cottage).
Time: 6.30 – 8.30 p.m.
Invited Speakers: Tulip Siddiq (L.B. Camden Councillor and Labour Party Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Hampstead & Kilburn).
Ian Ward (Postal Executive Member, Communication Workers’ Union); the Post Office; locally elected representatives
We have been establishing a promising network of contacts within the local Labour movement in support of our campaign, plus maintaining regular contact with the local press.
As a concerted “final push” to build the Public Meeting on 21st November, I formally propose that we leaflet for this outside Swiss Cottage on Monday, 18thNovember.
Monday is the busiest day for customer footfall, so I suggest that we should try to cover the whole day, if possible, maybe in 2 shifts (say 9.00 a.m. – 1.00 p.m. and 1.00 p.m. – 5.00 p.m.)
I f you would kindly let me know at your earliest convenience if you can spare any time on Monday, 18th (even if only for a short while), we can organise in advance accordingly.
I shall also ask the staff if they can volunteer on their day off or during their breaks.
A further bout of strike action has now also been called for Wednesday, 20th November from 2.30 – 5.30 p.m., so could also ask if you are able to come along to Swiss Cottage to do some more leafleting then?
Thank you for your assistance: please do feel free to call me, if you wish.
Regards and best wishes, GKW – GARY – C.W.U. Area Representative in P.O.L. CSCSM Area 12 – 07587138733/ Mobex: 53703418.
