"We are increasingly frustrated with Royal Mail that every time we get near an agreement they seem to walk away," said General Secretary of the CWU Billy Hayes.

"What we want everyone to be focused on now is getting an agreement and the sooner this is wrapped up for CWU members, the public, Royal Mail and the wider community, the better for all."

Royal Mail said it had now cleared virtually all delays caused by last week's stoppages and that it was doing "all it reasonably and legally can" to get the post to its customers as soon as possible.

But the CWU said Royal Mail's estimate of the backlog was "laughable", alleging that between 50 million and 60 million items had in fact been delayed.

Talks between the CWU and Royal Mail are set to continue next week. They have been locked in a row over pay and modernisation.

I dont care, because im collecting mine from Asda, but if I was buying the game for myself or for a child who was really looking forward to it and these idiots caused me not to get it I wouldnt be very happy as Im sure most people wont be. I think its blatantly obvious its not an end-of-the-world issue but that doesnt mean it wont upset people

'how will it effect you' lol. Oh and its 'affect'

US Postal Service:

555,000,000 daily mail delivered
656,000 employees
= 848 delivered items per employee in US Postal Service


UK Mail:

75,000,000 daily mail delivered
176,000 employees
= 426 delivered items per employee in UK Royal Mail

Assuming those stats are accurate


I would ask every RM Employee, economies of scale aside, why is the US Postal service twice as efficient as the RM?
