Postal staff may cut ties.

GORDON Brown will face anger from postal workers today when one of the biggest affiliates to Labour will decide whether to split from the party in protest at controversial plans to part-privatise the Royal Mail.

The Bournemouth conference of the Communication Workers Union will debate its links with Labour and its MPs in the wake of moves for a partial sell off of the postal group.

Royal Mail also intends to close the Liverpool sorting office and transfer all work to Warrington.

The union gives around pounds 1m to Labour every year in affiliation fees and constituency development funds.

A series of motions will be debated at the meeting, including one to disaffiliate and end all funding to the Labour party..
