Parcel and Letter Deliveries


On days when strike action is taking place:


Royal Mail will deliver as many Special Delivery Guaranteed parcels as possible. They will prioritise and deliver as many Special Delivery Guaranteed items as resources allow. They cannot however guarantee delivery by 9am or 1pm next day. Customers will not be able to claim for delays to items during this period.


Royal Mail will deliver as many Tracked 24 wherever possible. However, significantly reduced resources mean there will be a delay to some Tracked 24 items during strike action.


Other items posted the day before, during strike action or on the days after any strike action will be subject to delays.
