ROYAL MAIL INDUSTRIAL ACTION AND HOW IT AFFECTS OUR DELIVERY SERVICES

The Communication Workers Union (CWU) has called on its members who collect, sort and deliver parcels and letters for Royal Mail to take strike action on Friday 26 August 2022, Wednesday 31 August 2022, Thursday 8 September 2022 and Friday 9 September 2022.

Key Points for how it affects our delivery services to you:

  • All orders placed between 2.30pm Tuesday 6th September and 2.30pm Friday 9th September are likely to be subject to some delays due to the strike action.
  • As Royal Mail will not be collecting parcels on Thursday 8th September and Friday 9th September, all orders placed between 2.30pm Wednesday 7th September and 8am Saturday 10th September will be dispatched on Saturday 10th September. 
  • Royal Mail will not be delivering on Thursday 8th September and Friday 9th September.
