"Competition Not Wanted In Jersey"

Jersey Post claim unfair treatment



Jersey Post chairman Mike Liston

THE future of Jersey Post is being put at risk by a regulator ‘recklessly’ pursuing the ideology of competition.
That is the view of the chairman of the States-owned postal business that just about broke even last year, according to its latest results.
Mike Liston criticised the policies being pursued by the Jersey Competition Regulatory Authority in his review of 2010 trading presented to States Members yesterday.
He warns that the Island’s postal service ‘risks collapse’ and that more jobs will go as a result. More than 170 posts were shed in 2010 and more than £2 million was paid out to staff in redundancy payments.
