Postman says he was forced out over bike

UPI News Service, 01/26/2012 

A longtime mail carrier in Britain said he was forced out of his job because he refused to switch from his bicycle to a mail truck.

William Blight, 42, who has delivered mail in Corfe Castle, England, for 14 years, said he felt "bullied" and "intimidated" by Royal Mail officials who ordered him to nix his bicycle in favor of a high-capacity mail truck, The Daily Telegraph reported Thursday.

Blight said it would be "dangerous" for him to take a truck on his route due to the narrow roads in the area.

"I even measured the trolley and did a walk of my round, measuring the pavement," he said. "My concerns about it were confirmed -- it was unsafe and dangerous. I'm happy to compromise but I object to being subjected to poor working procedures and dangerous conditions."

Blight said he felt he had no choice but to resign his position.
