Last week, members of the CWU voted by three-to-one to support strike action as part of a dispute about pay, modernisation and working conditions. The strikes are to begin tomorrow on the 22nd October and the action is expected to take the form of rolling strikes, affecting different parts of the organisation on different days, rather than an all-out national strike by postal workers.
Please rest assured that orders placed via our website will not be affected by the Royal Mail Postal Strike. Parcels will be delivered by Parcelforce, who albeit are part of the Royal Mail, are no way involved in the strikes. I can therefore reassure you that you will receive your orders as promptly as you have always done.
It does of course affect our mail order business as we rely on the post coming us to us everyday with your orders in them. If the strikes do go ahead as proposed, at this time it would be far more reliable to place your order via the website, or if you are not comfortable with that please call us and we will be more than happy to take your order over the phone.
