This has been mentioned and posted before but it's now only two days away.
If you have urgent letters or cashback claims that need to arrive this week you may want to consider using Special Delivery.

We are hugely disappointed to confirm that the CWU has given us notice of strike action. The strike will take place on Friday June 29th, beginning at 3am.
We have well-developed contingency plans in order to reduce the effect of the strike, but disruption is inevitable.
Royal Mail's priorities during the strike are:

[* protect vulnerable members of society, who depend on Post Office payments of pensions and social security
[* ensure customers can continue to post mail, through the Post Office network
[* maintain Royal Mail Special Delivery services wherever possible
[* maintain other delivery services wherever possible What does it mean for our customers

[* Access to Royal Mail services is available on strike days - but limited to a single collection from street boxes and Post Office Counters, which may be earlier than the advertised times
[* We will attempt to deliver Special Delivery items, but this cannot be guaranteed, and so the money-back guarantees on these services will be suspended for items posted on Thursday June 28th
[* Special Delivery items posted on Friday June 29th will be guaranteed to be delivered on Monday July 2nd
[* Parcelforce's guaranteed services will remain unaffected
[* All other mail services will be subject to delay How can you work with us to minimise the disruption to your mail

[* Try to avoid posting on the day of any strike, and post early in the day if you really have to
[* Post your mail at one of the 14,000 Post Offices not affected by strike action, but be aware that they will not be able to accept bulk mailings
[* Our customer service helpline - 08457 740 740 will operate, but will be very busy, so please be patient
[* Our website, http://www.royalmail.com/update , will contain the latest update on affected areas, so please log on to help you plan your mailings

According to my Post Office Manager, it's just for 24 hours, but he reckons it will take 5 days to get everything back to 'normal' because of the backlog of mail.

iv been told at the post office yesterday, to try and avoid posting anything from today (thursday) till monday, as they guy reckoned there would be a "considerably" greater chance of the items being lost /delayed, and items posted on tuuesday are more likely to get there before items posted in this period.
