Post Office workers will start five days of strikes next week from Monday the 19th of December until Christmas Eve. The good new is that letters sent via the PC2Paper service will not be affected by these strikes so you can continue to send you mail as normal.

PC2Paper also offers the Signed For and Special Delivery services available from your Post Office counter so you can still use us as an alternative whilst the Post Office is not operating. We think you will find it so easy that you might just continue to use our service rather than waiting in the Post Office queue. Just remember we have 1pm cut-off for our signed services to ensure they are posted the same working day.

A further two postal strikes look likely to ahead causing further delays to mail sent within the UK. The strikes will go ahead on Friday the 6th and Monday the 9th of November. Rather than continuing the practice of rolling strikes where different staff strike on different days the next wave of strikes will see all workers walking out. If the strikes go ahead there will be no mail collections or deliveries on these days. This will mean that mail sent via PC2Paper after 4pm on Thursday the 5th of November will not enter the postal system until the service returns to normal on Tuesday the 10th of November. Customers should also expect delays to mail after this date as Royal Mail work to clear the backlog caused by the strikes action. Our other printing stations remain unaffected.
