Royal Mail Strikes

*** Update - latest strike action dates ***

  • Friday 30 September 2022 and Saturday 1 October 2022
  • Thursday 13th October 2022
  • Thursday 20th October 2022
  • Tuesday 25th October 2022
  • Monday 28th November 2022  

The Communication Workers Union (CWU) has called on its members who collect, sort and deliver parcels and letters to take strike action on the following dates:

• Friday 26 August 2022
• Wednesday 31 August 2022
• Thursday 8 September 2022
• Friday 9 September 2022

This means that some of our parcels will be delayed, both as a result of the strikes and the backlog caused afterwards- as well as a bank holiday on Monday 29th August. We'd recommend ordering from us at least a few days before each strike date so that you can get your orders beforehand*:

  • Tuesday 23 August for Thursday 25 August (there will likely be a delay due to the bank holiday for any orders received before the Wednesday 31 August strike, so please bear this in mind
  • Friday 3 September for Wednesday 7 September

* Some areas in the country are also experiencing staffing issues, so this can also affect delivery times. The dates given above are a loose guide only. We'd recommend ordering as early as possible if you need something by a particular date.
