Royal Mail Strike Action Winter 2022 + Christmas Shipping
Upcoming strikes may affect your purchases
In the run up to Christmas, Royal Mail have multiple strike days scheduled, which will mean there will be days when your packages won't be collected, and days when you won't receive any mail. If you have specific dates you are buying for, especially in the run up to Christmas, we advise you shop as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
The strike dates and information on the Royal Mail website that has been announced so far is as follows:
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 Friday 9 December, Sunday 11 December, Wednesday 14 December, Thursday 15 December, Friday 23 December and Saturday 24 December 2022.
For more details on the strike, you can have a look at the Royal Mail website here.
We will continue to process our orders daily, but they could be subject to transit delays of 2-3 days around the strike dates.
For standard delivery in the UK, order no later than Wednesday 14th December to ensure delivery for Christmas. If you plan to use Special Delivery, you can order on Thursday 16th. We will still be processing orders up until 23rd, but the strike dates will create a backlog in depots so orders may still be delayed.
