CWU & COVID-19 – SUPPORTING OUR NHS

Dear Colleagues


CWU & COVID-19 – SUPPORTING OUR NHS


Today we are proud to launch our short CWU film and campaign in support of the NHS.

In it, we hear personal testimony of the devastating impacts of COVID-19 on our members and how NHS workers went above and beyond for them in their darkest moments. We also spoke to a 999 call operator and CWU member about their experience of working during the pandemic.


What is absolutely clear from these stories is how much NHS workers have done for us over the past 16 months. Now is the time for us to begin repaying them.

In the coming weeks we will be launching a campaign to raise awareness and funds to support NHS workers.


The idea for the campaign came from Ian Pointer (CWU Area Delivery Rep Nottingham), who is featured in the video and who courageously fought and won his own life threatening battle with Covid.


We don’t want the contribution of NHS workers to ever be forgotten or taken for granted. By extending the collectivism that is at the heart of the CWU, we can ensure that this never happens. Let’s thank our NHS. Please share our video.


Yours sincerely

Dave Ward

General Secretary
