Royal Mail Strike Action

Back to Home Page

Due to the delays we are experiencing with normal post
we will currently be using Royal Mail Special Delivery only
Not guaranteed next day but should arrive within working 2 days

if you have an order but don't need it delivering before Christmas
contact us for a cheaper delivery method.

The CWU has formally notified Royal Mail they plan to call on their members who collect, sort and deliver parcels and letters to take national strike action on Friday 9 December, Sunday 11 December, Wednesday 14 December and Thursday 15 December 2022.

Royal Mail has well-developed contingency plans, but we cannot fully replace the daily efforts of our frontline workforce. We’ll be doing what we can to keep services running, but we are sorry this planned strike action is likely to cause you some disruption.

Royal Mail will continue to accept, prioritise and deliver as many Special Delivery Guaranteed items as resources allow during industrial action. 

Royal Mail cannot however guarantee delivery by 9am or 1pm next day for items sent during periods of industrial action. We are therefore suspending the delivery guarantee for items posted from 13th October, up to and including items sent Through November and December or for items sent between.

Customers will not be able to claim for items posted on these dates and which are not delivered on time. 

PLEASE NOTE!   We DO NOT issue refunds for any delayed postage.

Only place an order if you agree to these terms as we have no control as to when any order will arrive regardless of which delivery method you choose during this Royal Mail Strike Action Period.
