NFRN in talks over alliance with sub posmasters

16 January, 2015

The membership associations representing Independent newsagents and sub postmasters have held “positive” talks about forming an alliance, according to NFRN chief executive Paul Baxter.

Senior representatives from the NFRN met with officials and members from the National Federation of SubPostmasters on Tuesday (January 13) to discuss the possibility of a merger.

Speaking afterwards, Baxter said: “The NFSP is currently considering a number of options regarding its future and has approached a number of organisations, including the NFRN, to explore a potential merger.

“We were delighted to have the opportunity to present to the NFSP’s executive council yesterday and to demonstrate the substantial and wide ranging package of benefits that NFRN members enjoy.

It is our belief that these benefits, coupled with the NFRN’s structure and size, could offer significant support to sub postmasters and that a tie-up with the NFSP, bringing together the best of both of our organisations, would be a positive step for us both.

“It was a very positive meeting and the NFRN’s presentation was very well received.”
