Royal Mail Industrial Action

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:

  • Wednesday 2 November
  • Thursday 3 November
  • Friday 4 November 2022
  • Tuesday 8 November
  • Wednesday 9 November
  • Thursday 10 November 2022


The planned strikes involve CWU members in different areas of Roya Mail, with each area taking strike action on different days. This means most services will only be affected on one or two of the days during the planned days of strike action that week.

Any items delivered via Royal Mail are expected to experience delays. If you need your order more urgently, please select Next Day Delivery at checkout as these orders are being prioritised by workers returning from strike action.
