UK Postal strike update

15th October 2009 by Denise

As some of you may already know, there has been extensive industrial action by Royal Mail workers in the UK over the past few weeks.

This is only affecting our UK based customers, not everyone purchasing from the UK store.

Customers have been experiencing small delays and we encourage anyone based in the UK to allow a little extra time for delivery.

If you want to avoid the strikes altogether, please use our Express service, which is fully trackable and usually delivered the day after the items are dispatched.

Intermittent local and regional strikes by both collection and sorting services, plus your personal mailmen, are ongoing and at this point no resolution has been reached. At a recent Royal Mail member’s meeting 76% of postal workers voted for a national strike, which at this point has not been finalized or scheduled. We will be doing our best to keep UK customers in the loop.

UPDATE: Royal Mail Strikes

The Royal Mail site confirms there will be further strikes on Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd October. If you’re in the UK and need your order in a hurry, remember MOO’s Express shipping option!

Finally, for daily updates on the UK Royal Mail strikes, and how they might be affecting you, keep an eye on the Royal Mail site.
