Industrial Action at Royal Mail

By | November 24th, 2022|Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Main Page, Press Releases|0 Comments

In the on-going industrial dispute between Royal Mail and the Communication Workers Union further days of industrial action have been announced. There will be no parcel collection services by Royal Mail from our warehouse today (November 24th, 2022) and tomorrow (November 25th, 2022). Further strike action is planned for the end of November and into December.

Everything Dinosaur is doing all it can to implement contingency plans but delays to parcel deliveries over the lead up to the festive season are inevitable.

We have compiled a list of the days when industrial action has been scheduled:

A Statement from Royal Mail

The management of Royal Mail have provided the following statement:

“The CWU has formally notified Royal Mail they plan to call on their members who collect, sort and deliver parcels and letters to take national strike action on Thursday 24, Friday 25 and Wednesday 30 November and Thursday 1 December 2022.”

Royal Mail management added:

“Royal Mail has well-developed contingency plans, but we cannot fully replace the daily efforts of our frontline workforce. We’ll be doing what we can to keep services running, but we are sorry this planned strike action is likely to cause you some disruption.”

Industrial Action at Royal Mail

Royal Mail has stated that after previous strikes services have been able to recover quite quickly. However, the end of November and December are the busiest times for the company, and we suspect that the industrial action is going to cause severe delays and disruption.

We at Everything Dinosaur are doing all we can to find alternative collection/delivery options, and we are switching to other carriers to help mitigate the impact of these strikes, but we urge everyone to shop early for the festive season to avoid disappointment.
