The Communication Workers Union (CWU) has called on its members who collect, sort, distribute and deliver parcels and mail to take strike action on Friday 26 August, Wednesday 31 August and for two days on Thursday 8 and Friday 9 September 2022.
Royal Mail has well-developed contingency plans, but they cannot fully replace the daily efforts of its frontline workforce. We will be doing what we can to keep services running, but customers should expect significant disruption.
We’re really sorry for the disruption that this strike action is likely to cause to you. We want to reassure you will do everything we can to minimise disruption and get your services back to normal as quickly as possible.
Royal Mail is ready to talk further with the CWU to try and avert industrial action.
