Isle of Man Post Office is recommending that customers post earlier than planned both before, and in the days following the planned postal strike action in the UK.
This comes following news that a further 19 dates of planned strikes have been announced by the CWU who represent the majority of Royal Mail’s postal workers, with 3 of these being ‘all out’ strike action across the Royal Mail network.
The strike dates are as follows, but subject to change upon formal notification from Royal Mail.
|October||13th, 20th and 25th|
|November||2nd, 3rd, 4th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 14th, 15th, 16th 23rd and 24th|
|December||1st and 2nd|
It is expected that Royal Mail will continue to accept mail sent on the day of any action, meaning outbound mail will be dispatched as planned. However the delivery of items will be subject to delay and there will be a
suspension on time guarantee services.
IOMPO and its postal workers are not involved in this dispute and all deliveries IOMPO undertakes for other delivery partners will not be affected and will continue as normal.
Customers can stay up to date with information relating to the impact of services as and when available by visiting iompost.com/royal-mail-strike-action-updates.
