October 11, 2018 | 9 Comments

The Bermuda Post Office celebrated World Post Day, and also acknowledged 123 employees who have worked with the Post Office for more than five continuous years.

A Government spokesperson said, “This week, the Bermuda Post Office [BPO] recognised its long serving employees. The recognition coincided with the observation of World Post Day, which is celebrated annually on 9 October.

“During the long service ceremony the Minister for the Cabinet Office with responsibility for Government Reform, the Hon. Lovitta Foggo, JP, MP, and those gathered, celebrated over 2,460 years of postal service, and acknowledged 123 employees with certificates and awards.

“All employees honoured were individuals who have worked with BPO for more than five continuous years. The awards presentation concluded a general staff meeting which saw all postal staff in attendance.

“The public should note that this week, the BPO planned a series of activities in tandem with the observance of World Post Day. These events included an employee blood drive; the long service awards recognition; and an official unveiling of the 50th Anniversary of the Turtle Project Panels, which take place today [Oct. 11].

“More than 150 countries recognise World Post Day, which is in keeping with the anniversary of the establishment of the Universal Postal Union [UPU] in 1874 in Bern, Switzerland. The observance encourages UPU member countries to undertake activities aimed at generating broader awareness of the Post’s role and activities among the public on a national scale.”

    • Stand For Truth says:

      Comprehension is key the article clearly states working more than five continuous years.

    • watching says:

      many companies give long service awards for staff beginning at 5 years, then 10 years etc.
      what is the issue?

  2. justasuggestion says:

    Awarding people for providing the worst possible level of postal service in the world. The BPO is truly based on Post Man Pat.

    • Karen says:

      Agreed. If only they smiled like that when they are working. Some of them make you feel like they are doing you a favor, especially down in parcel post.

  3. Flabbergasted says:

    LOL
    3 person/years worth of of work conducted over “2,460 years of postal service”
    I cant wait until there is no such thing as the postal service draining our tax dollars.
    The ‘service’ is worse than terrible. It is one of Bermuda’s many social welfare services.

    I want to say they dont deserve any recognition, but i dont want to overlook the few that do. I happened to go to the main post office around 12:30 the day of this event. Three miserable ladies..never uttered a greeting or responded to mine. In addition the one who served me, gestured me with her hand to her post. You know what i wanted to say to her!!These are the people you have on the front line serving the public.A waste of public funds…i say fire the bunch of them. Noone has a single nice thing to say about Bermuda’s postal service. Disgraceful.
