Postal Worker Strikes: Anticipated delivery delays

Posted 28 September 2022

Members of the Communication Workers Union (CWU) have announced they will take strike action around the weekend of 30th September in a dispute over pay.  A further 19 strike days have been anounced between 13th October and 2nd December affecting diferent parts of the service.

For small orders you have the choice of delivery by post or by a courier for most addresses.  Different charges will apply.

If you need your order quickly during this period, you should consider choosing the courier option.  

Delays: At the time of writing, Royal Mail are not indicating the length of delays that we can expect.  We anticipate 2 - 5 working days delays to some deliveries made by post for orders placed just before or during the indistrial action.

The express 24 - 48 hour postal option will also be delayed and we cannot guarantee it will arrive within this timescale.
