Hey guys,

I just wanted to draw your attention to the postal strikes which have been taking place in various pockets of the country but are going largely unreported.

They have been going on for around a month now and are starting to impact upon us all, I thought I should mention it now as a friend of mine has today said he has not recieved any post in South Devon for 3 days as the Plymouth sorting office has been on strike.

There is very little information out there and unless you go hunting for it, you may not have even heard about these strikes yet.

I have been very lucky so far in that I have not had my personal post affected (yet!), however, from a business point of view, I have noticed that there as there has been a marked increase in “missing packages” being reported to me over the last 7 – 10 days.

If you have ordered anything from My Little Customs recently and it has not arrived as promptly as usual, please let me know and I shall endeavour to help.

If you wanted to check if there are any strikes affecting your area, please take a look at the Royal Mail’s website here.

For futher information, please see these articles:

The Daily Mail – Million of letters undelivered

The Daily Mail – Your post is in the gutter

The BBC – Postal workers vote on strike

There is also a large thread over on the UK Business Forums which highlights just how many businesses are being affected! You can view the thread here – Royal Mail Delays
