The Communication Workers Union is calling on public, media and politicians to recognise the efforts of its members, who deliver essential items, check on elderly people and taking shopping to vulnerable people.

CWU official Gary Clark said: “It is sad that senior management have not recognised the efforts of our members but the public have. The sight of posters in windows, drinks left on doorsteps or even a simple ‘thank you’ mean the world to our members.
