    the strike today is sorting office/mail center staff, and tomorrow it’s delivery staff. So that’s why you get mail today, you may get some tomorrow, but only if your postman is not on strike. He wont have much to deliver though as nobody is sorting it today. So there will be huge amounts to deliver on saturday and monday.

    I believe special deliveries are still guaranteed as managers and ‘black legs’ (a non striking postman!) will do them.

    These are the only scheduled strikes so far, but if they don’t come to an agreement they will announce more strikes in the following weeks. I’m pretty sure they have to give seven days notice.
