The Communication Workers Union (CWU) has called on its members who collect, sort and deliver parcels and letters to take strike action on 8th, 30th of September and on October 1st 2022.
We’re really sorry for the disruption that this strike action is likely to cause to you. We want to reassure you we will do everything we can to minimise disruption and get your orders delivered to your door as quickly as possible.
Royal Mail has well-developed contingency plans, but they cannot fully replace the daily efforts of its frontline workforce. We will be doing what we can to keep disruptions to an absolute minimum.
That being said, we have now begun using DPD as an alternative postal carrier to ensure your parcels are delivered on-time. Royal Mail rates will be re-launched on the website Oct 3rd to prevent any possible delays.
