Posti warns of possible mail delivery disruption

Finland’s Posti has advised that planned work stoppages by SAK and AKT union members on Friday (2 February) may causes delays in mail delivery.

In a notice posted on its website yesterday (30 January), Posti said that, if the stoppages go ahead, they could delay deliveries in some parts of Finland by 1–3 days.

Jarmo Ainasoja, Director of Posti’s Control Centre, commented: “We will have a more detailed estimate on Wednesday when we have completed our discussions with our personnel about arranging work. It’s important for us to minimize the inconvenience for our customers. We will resort to exceptional arrangements wherever possible.”

Posti added: “Should the demonstrations take place, the sorting, transport and delivery of post will be slowed down on February 2, and the backlog can only be processed after the weekend on Monday, February 5. The demonstrations may also affect customer service and Posti’s service points.”

While the strike may affect the delivery of domestic letters, magazines, direct marketing items, parcels and freight and newspapers in some areas, Posti said that it will not affect “deliveries related to the health and safety of customers, such as blood deliveries, laboratory samples, grocery deliveries, meal deliveries and care services”.
