Royal Mail anticipates minimal impact from Post Office strike
Royal Mail has assured its customers that if the planned Post Office strike does go ahead next Thursday (15 September) it will have little or no impact on its services. In a statement sent to Post&Parcel today (9 September), a Royal Mail spokesperson said: “If any industrial action takes place in Post Office Ltd, Royal Mail will be operating as normal. We expect there to be no or little impact on the services we provide to our customers.
“Post Office limited has over 11,000 branches which will continue to operate as normal. Customers who need to post at a post office should use these branches.
“Royal Mail customers will also continue to have access to Royal Mail services including pre-paid parcel drop-off through over 1,200 Customer Service Points at Delivery Offices nationwide.”
As previously reported, members of the Communication Workers Union (CWU) and Unite have voted in favour of a one-day strike as part over their ongoing dispute over pay, pensions and the restructuring of the Post Office network.
