Royal Mail Strike Action

Royal Mail Industrial Strike Action


We have been informed that the Communication Workers Union (CWU) has called on its members who collect, sort, distribute and deliver parcels and mail to take strike action on the following listed dates:

Full service disruption on the following dates:

Thursday 24th of November

Friday 25th of November

Wednesday 30th of November

Thursday 1st of December

Friday 9th of December

Sunday 11th of December

Wednesday 14th of December

Thursday 15th of December

Friday 23rd of December

Saturday 24th of December


Unfortunately this may increase the advised delivery time frames stated on our website. We will not receive collections on the strike days where there is full service disruption. This is outside of our control and your order may take longer to arrive.


Although Royal Mail do have contingency plans, they cannot fully replace the daily efforts of its frontline workforce and as a result there will be disruption to normal daily service of parcels.


As a result of the strike action on these days, they will not be classed as working days as we cannot guarantee that Royal Mail will deliver parcels on these days.


Special Delivery post will not be guaranteed next day as a result of this and has been stated on the Royal Mail website.


Further information on the strike action and information can be found on the Royal Mail website via the following Link:

We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding as this is outside of our control and we hope that Royal Mail can reach a mutual understanding with the CWU


Kind Regards,
