The Communication Workers Union (CWU) has called on its members who collect, sort, distribute and deliver parcels and mail at Royal Mail to take strike action on Friday 30th September and Saturday 1st October.

Even though Royal Mail has well-developed contingency plans in place, they cannot fully replace the daily efforts of its frontline workforce. We will be doing what we can to keep our services running, but there may be significant disruptions to our deliveries over this period.

We’re really sorry for the disruption that this strike action is likely to cause you. We want to reassure you that we will do everything we can to minimise disruption and get your orders to you as quickly as possible.

These issues are sadly out of our control, and we sincerely apologise for any delays that may result from this.
