Royal Mail Strikes: What does this mean for postage?


Members of the Communication Workers Union (CWU), which is represented by over 100,000 Royal Mail Group workers, have called for further national strike action, which will disrupt postage over some dates throughout the upcoming months.

In a recent report by CWU, (shared info) they shared that 97.6% of the CWU members who voted were in favour of the strike action, as they are striking due to a long running disagreement over their pay and working conditions, as the cost of living crisis continues to rise.

There are three planned dates in October that will affects members who collect, sort, distribute and deliver parcels and letters across the UK:

  • Thursday 13th October
  • Thursday 20th October
  • Tuesday 25th October

Due to this, there will be a halt to delivery of all letters and parcels. However, Royal Mail (shared info) have stated that they will delivery as many Special Delivery and Tracked24 parcels as possible, with COVID test kits also having priority, but there is no guarantee that it won’t be disrupted by the strike due to a lack of staff.

Royal Mail have also released more potential strike action dates that will impact different parts of there company on different days from 2nd November – 2nd December:
