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:


Friday 26th of August (start of August bank holiday)

Wednesday 31st of August

Thursday 8th of September - Friday 9th of September


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.


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.


Unfortunately this may increase the advised delivery time frames stated on our website. We may also not receive collections on these days because of the strike action. This is outside of our control and your order may take longer to arrive.


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,
