An Update on Royal Mail Industrial Action

We have received this information from Royal Mail, which provides details about planned strike action by the Communication Workers Union (CWU) that will cause disruption and deliveries in the UK mail network.

Royal Mail has received formal notification from the CWU for industrial action to take place on the following dates:

  • Thursday 20th October 2022
  • Tuesday 25th October 2022

In a bulletin published by Royal Mail we note that they will continue to focus their efforts on working to get services back to normal as soon as possible after this industrial action.

Everything Dinosaur, whilst unable to do much about the strike action, will continue working over weekends to make sure parcels are ready for despatch as quickly as possible in order to minimise delays.

Royal Mail are working hard to develop contingency plans and to ensure that normal service is resumed as quickly as possible after the strike action. We have ensured that resources are in place to pick, prepare and pack parcels as quickly as we can so that they are ready for despatch. We have also been assured by Royal Mail that our collections will resume as quickly as possible after industrial action and that customer deliveries will resume the day after the strike action finishes.

More Strike Action is Planned

Royal Mail is aware that further strike action is planned with the CWU publicly announcing further dates for industrial action including Monday 28th of November. Other dates for strike action have been proposed throughout November and December.

We advise customers to order early to avoid disappointment, especially in the lead up to the festive season.
