New last posting dates confirmed by Royal Mail | Pro IQRA News

Pro IQRA News Updates.

Royal Mail has brought forward Christmas latest publication dates as strikes continue. The workers are set to go on strike on multiple dates in December over a long-running dispute over wages and working conditions.

Over recent months, members of the Communications Workers’ Union (CWU) have gone on numerous strikes, which Royal Mail claims have cost them £100m. In December, the CWU members will go out on six separate dates, one of which will be Christmas Eve.

On the strike dates, Royal Mail will not be delivering any letters or parcels, except for those sent by private delivery. To combat the disruption that strikes are expected to cause in the run-up to Christmas, Royal Mail has decided to bring forward the latest posting dates.

Royal Mail has brought forward the last posting day for second-class mail by seven days, from 19 December to 12 December. The deadline for first class mail is now five days early, having been moved forward from December 21st to December 16th.

Despite its “evolving contingency plans”, Royal Mail said it “cannot fully replace the daily efforts of the frontline workforce”. A note on the site added: “We will do our best to keep the services running, but we regret that this planned strike action is likely to cause you some disruption. We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding.”
