Welwyn Garden City Royal Mail sorting office saved
WGC’s sorting office will NOT be closing, it has been confirmed.
Workers at the office in Bessemer Road received confirmation from Royal Mail this morning (Friday).
The sorting office had been threatened with closure amid plans by Royal Mail to relocate operations to Stevenage.
But after a mass public outcry which saw around 7,000 WGC residents sign a petition that was ultimately delivered to Westminister, staff have learned that the unit has been saved.
Lee Barnes, the Communication Workers’ Union rep for the WGC office, thanked the public for all their efforts in keeping the facility open.
